Elza Leticia's story

Elza Leticia, who is 33, lives in her own home along with her two children (a girl of 4 and a boy of 12) and her parents. She works in a small café for which she receives a small wage which, along with a contribution from her parents, covers the household expenses. Elza is a woman who is dedicated to her work and her family and, as she is keen to do the bet she can for them, she decided to have some work done on the house. She wants to install a bathroom, as all they currently have is a hole in the ground with a plastic covering. They want to build walls, put in supports and a roof so they can install a shower. She hopes to begin the work as soon as possible, but she cannot afford the cost of the materials and so she is applying to FUSAI for a loan to buy cement, bricks, sand and galvanised steel. Elza Leticia is delighted to receive this help and promises to make her repayments punctually.
