Maura Dolores's story

Maura Dolores is an enterprising, responsible and modest woman of 33, who lives in her own home with her daughter, her parents and her two siblings. To earn her living, she sells fruit, toasted sandwiches and soft drinks and, at weekends, she also sells tamales. Her house, which is in a rural area, is not in good condition and the family needs more space. For that reason, she wants to build an extra room which will mean building walls of resistant brick and adding a tin roof. She hopes to do this as soon as possible but, as she does not have the capital necessary to buy the materials, she is applying to FUSAI for a loan to buy cement, sand, breezeblocks, iron, galvanised steel and to pay for the work to be done. Maura Dolores is delighted to receive this help and she guarantees that she will be able to repay her debt.
