Johana Marielos's story

Johana, 20, has lived in the family home for seven years. She’s a hardworking, dedicated, responsible woman. Her goal is to improve her living conditions. Her husband had to move abroad to earn money to move the family forward. With the little she gets from the stipends he sends she’s able to cover food and basic utility (water, electricity) costs.

She’d like to make her humble home safer with a metal mesh and cement post perimeter wall but does not have cash to make this investment which is why she’s asking FUSAI for a loan to buy the needed supplies (metal mesh, cement posts, etc.) She’s sure that with the little help she gets she’ll be able to repay the loan she’s requesting.
