Gabriela's story

Fifty-two year old Gabriela lives with her four children, her mother and her brother in her own house. She makes her living buying and selling chickens and seasoned chickens. She works in her shop everyday in order to make an honest daily living.

Gabriela is an entrepreneurial and innovative woman, who is always looking for the best for her family. They live in a house in the rural area. For the past few weeks, it has needed some repairs for the sake of comfort. She would like to fix the roof in the bedroom because it leaks a lot during the rainy season. She also wants to cement the patio so that the dirt doesn't turn to mud.

She hopes to begin the work as soon as possible, but due to scarce resources, she cannot cover the cost of the materials. This is why she is applying to FUSAI for a loan that will allow her to buy cement, sand, gravel, galvanized sheets and wood. Gabriela is very happy with the assistance and hopes to make her payments on time.
