Maria Isabel's story

María Isabel is 38 years old, lives with her family - her husband and children. She is a very hard-working woman who always has stood out as being entrepreneurial. Today she earns a living selling pupusas and pasteles (traditional dishes in her country) from her home. She sells every afternoon and thanks be to God she sells what she needs to sell to meet her daily needs. She has improved her home little by little and she still has more to do but doesn't have sufficient monetary resources so therefore she asked FUSAI for a loan that will enable her to buy construction materials such as cement and sand as her floor is earthen, and galvanized laminate to improve the roof of her room. she is confident to pay off the loan and make improvements.
