A loan of $200 helped to repair the roof of her home by buying galvanised sheets and nails.

Maria Mercedes's story

María Mercedes is 42 and lives with her partner and their three children, aged 3, 12 and 18. She earns money during the week by washing clothes. She goes to people's houses and they pay her to wash their clothes. She desperately needs a new roof for her house as the current sheeting is damaged. She is asking for a loan from FUSAI to buy galvanised sheets and nails to repair the roof of her humble home. She trusts that God will help her realise her dream.
