A loan of $700 helped to purchase sand, cement and bricks for flooring; her current floor is dirt.


Paula Del Carmen's story

Paula is 49 and lives together with her common-law husband, who helps her with the household expenses, and their two daughters, who are 9 and 15. She has earned her living for many years by working at home providing domestic services. For her, what is most important is her family, and her wish is to be able to provide them with better living conditions. Together with her partner they have been able to construct a modest house. She wishes to improve the floor in the passageway in her house, because at present it is dirt. This is why she is seeking a loan from FUSAI, to buy sand, cement and brick flooring in order to make the necessary improvements and give her daughters healthier and cleaner conditions.
