A loan of $500 helped to buy wood, rods, and bamboo to build a room.

Maria Salome's story

María is 63 years old. She lives in her own home with her husband, her mother, and her two children. She sells empanadas (a plantain-and-milk-based food preparation) and fresh fruit. She works as a street vendor in the main areas of her community. She wants to build a small room inside her property, which is why she is requesting this loan from FUSAI. She will invest in the purchase of wood, rods, and bamboo to carry out her project. She is sure that she will be able to pay off the acquired debt with what she makes from her business and her husband's help.
