Ana Leticia's story

Ana Leticia is 33 years old and lives with her partner and two children ages 12 and 7. They live in their own home, she owns a small shop and also sells pupusas at the weekends. Her husband is a transporter. With her work she helps with the household expenses, as it has been very difficult to get ahead, but together they have always managed to drive their small family forward. Ana is a dedicated woman, responsible but above all humble.

Her home is located in an area outside the city, and for some time she has wanted to build a dividing wall in the house. She wants to start the work as soon as possible, since at the moment they only have a wooden divide as a wall, but she doesn't have enough capital to cover the material costs. This is why she is asking FUSAI for a loan that will allow her to buy bricks, cement, sand, iron and gravel. Ana Leticia is very happy with the help and is taking on the responsibility of repaying the loan.
