Chila Susana's story

Chila Susana is 33 years old. She lives in her own home with her life partner and their three children, two of whom are girls at 14 and 5 years old, and one a boy who is 7 years old. She makes a living selling tamales and refreshing drinks. Her husband also supports her with home expenses, although it has been difficult to come out ahead. Together, however, they have always been able to motivate their small family.

Chila is a dedicated, responsible, and above all very modest woman. Her home is located in an area outside of the city, in the country, and they do not have sanitary service. She knows that it is a necessity and she wants to construct the bathroom. Furthermore, she wishes to buy tin to roof the entire passageway that surrounds the house. She wants to begin the work as soon as possible, but she does not possess sufficient capital to cover the expenses.

Because of this, she is requesting a loan from FUSAI, which will allow her to buy bricks, cement, sand, tin, and a bath. Chila Susana is very pleased with the help and she has made herself responsible for paying back the loan.
