Julia Del Carmen's story

Julia del Carmen is 61 years old and lives with her two children in her own house. She works hard washing and ironing for others so she can obtain income every day. In addition, her children are grown and help her with the household expenses. Julia del Carmen is very dedicated to her work and is honest and above all responsible. Her house is located in a rural area and is a humble house that needs some repairs. She wants to repair her roof since it is in great disrepair and isn't safe for them (water leaks through it). Due to her modest financial circumstances, she doesn't have the money to pay for the materials or the labor. For this reason, she is asking FUSAI for a loan that will allow her to buy galvanized sheet metal and wood for the beams and also pay to have her roof fixed. Julia del Carmen is very happy for the help and promises to pay back her debt.
