Maria Bernarda's story

Maria, 59, is a single mother who lost her life partner several years ago. So, alone, she has raised her son who is now an adult. Maria lives in her own house and earns a living selling wood and basic grains like corn, beans, rice and millet. Thanks to her work she is able to get ahead and look after her household. Maria wants to improve her home by building a porch, but she does not have the economy to do so. Therefore she is requesting a loan through FUSAI to buy beams and metal sheeting, and pay labor costs to begin construction of the porch. This will make her family more comfortable and safer.
