A loan of $200 helped to invest in potable water.

Maria Ester's story

María, 51, is a single mother who has been living for a long time with her daughter and two grandchildren in a house that’s humble but hers. She works selling leaves that are used to wrap tamales, a traditional food, in the town main square. She’s been in this business 15 years and this is how she supports her home.

María lacks potable water service so she must pay more to get it or carry it very early from the community’s public fountain. María approached FUSAI for this loan to bring this much needed vital liquid.
