Marta Alicia's story
Marta is 38 years old and lives with her husband and three children, two girls aged 2 to 12 years and a 15 year old son, in her own home. She and her husband have worked hard to give their children the best and to provide them with a good education. For the past 6 years Marta has made a living selling pupusas (stuffed tortillas) outside her home. She works from Wednesday to Sunday and on Monday and Tuesdays she does the household chores. In this way she helps to provide the daily bread for their children. Marta's kitchen is in the living room of her house, which is a danger to her youngest daughter who has recently learned to walk. She is afraid that she might have an accident, which is why she is requesting a loan from FUSAI to purchase cement, iron, sand, gravel and stone to build a room for cooking. She hopes to have the finance to begin construction immediately and no longer have to worry about the safety of her young daughter.
