Yaneth Esmeralda's story

Yaneth Esmeralda, who is 38, lives in her own home along with her 3 grown up-children and her father. She offers a range of services - washing other people's clothes and cleaning a school, and she also works in a small café. She works day and night to earn a living. Yaneth is a determined and very hardworking woman who is always on the lookout for good opportunities to make progress. For some time now, her house has needed a perimeter wall and, as she wants to keep her home and those live in it secure, she needs various materials to build one. Unfortunately, because her earnings are low, she cannot afford it and that is why she is applying to FUSAI for a loan to buy cement, iron, sand, gravel, pipes and, of course, pay the workmen. Yaneth Esmeralda is extremely grateful for the help and guarantees that she will repay her debt.
