A loan of $300 helped to buy materials for replastering the walls of her house.

Paula's story

Paula, 57, operates a business selling fruits and vegetables in her town's market. She is lively woman, dynamic and responsible. Her only material asset is her house. She and her son, a construction worker, have been slowly improving the house and her next project is replastering the outside walls. Rain seeps through the walls because the old plaster has worn away with past rains and damaged the bricks that form the walls. Paula is applying to FUSIA for a loan that she will use to buy the materials she needs to repair the cracks and replaster the walls of her house. The investment will ensure that she has a decent place to live.
