Maria Luisa's story

Maria Luisa is 51 years old and lives in her own home. She is a hard-working woman who looks out for herself. She is admired by her neighbors who say that she is responsible and very charismatic. She currently works planting Loroco (a plant native to El Salvador whose flower is edible).

She has decided to ask for a loan from FUSAI because she doesn't have enough money to replace her hallway roof and cement the floor. To do this she needs new metal sheets, nails, cement, and sand, among other materials. The roof is in very bad shape and in this rainy season it is very difficult to live in this space, so she hopes to solve her housing problem soon.
