A loan of $500 helped to invest in installing electricity.


Maria Del Carmen's story

María is 47 years old. She is a single mother who live in her own house with her three minor children. She has been selling elote tamales (a food made with a base made from young corn). With the income from her business, she gets what she needs to support her home and cover her childrens' basic needs. She wants to improve her living conditions, and that is why she has made the decision to ask FUSAI for a loan to invest in installing electricity in her home so her children can grow up in a better way.
