A loan of $500 helped to buy construction materials to replace the roof of her house which is rusty and leaking. This is why she is asking FUSAI for a loan. She will replace the tile with sheets of galvanized metal and roofing nails.


Wendy Karina's story

Wendy is 25 years old and for the past two years has lived in her own house together with her family. She is a young worker who never gives up and always accomplishes her goals. She sells clothing and bags for pupusas (stuffed corn tortillas) in a local market. This is how she earns an honest living and she is always grateful to God because the fruit of her labor has enabled her to improve her home. Little by little she has been making necessary changes and she wants to continue doing so. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have sufficient monetary resources to replace the roof which is rusty and leaking. This is why she is asking FUSAI for a loan to buy construction materials for the roof. She will replace the tile with sheets of galvanized metal and roofing nails. She hopes to do the repairs as soon as possible so that her family can be more comfortable in her house.
