Mercedes Magali's story
Mercedes is 24 years old and lives in her own home with her husband and two children who are 6 and 1 and a half years old. Mercedes is a hardworking woman with a great entrepreneurial spirit. She makes a living selling basic goods in a small store that she was able to open in her home through a lot of effort. Mercedes received a loan with which she repaired the walls of her house and parts of the roof that were very damaged, which caused water to leak. Thanks to her good experience with her first loan, she has decided to build a room. In order to so so, she has purchased a small amount of blocks with her savings, but she does not have enough to finish the room. This is why she is asking for another FUSAI loan: to invest in cement, sand, gravel and iron, to build a room and provide greater comfort to your family.
