A loan of $700 helped to buy metal sheeting, roof tiles and wood to build a bathroom.


Soledad Reyes's story

Soledad, 59, lives in her own home with her husband and two children, ages 20 and 16. She is a merchant and has been working for three years selling snacks (candy, nachos, cookies, etc.) from home. This is how she and her husband earn a living for the household economy.

In order to improve her housing conditions, she wants to cover the bathroom since the current one is out of doors and not very safe. She is requesting a loan through FUSAI to buy metal sheeting, roofing tiles and wood so she can enclose the bathroom as soon as possible.
