A loan of $500 helped to buy galvanized sheet metal, cement, sand, and gravel and pay for the labor needed to finish building a bedroom.


Berta Alicia's story

Berta, 56 years old, lives in her own home with her 79-year-old mother and her three grandchildren. She has been working as a massage therapist in her community for 25 years. Many people prefer her services because they are very satisfied with the massages she gives. A few months ago she erected the walls for a bedroom in her home, and now she wants to install a roof and floor so it will be habitable. She is requesting this loan from FUSAI so she can buy galvanized sheet metal, cement, sand, and gravel and pay for the labor needed to finish the bedroom.
