A loan of $700 helped to buy bricks, cement and sand to build a retaining wall and have an electricity supply installed.

Jaqueline Iveth's story

Jaqueline, who is 28, lives with her husband and two daughters aged 7 and 13. Two years ago she managed to set up small premises where she sells paper, exercise books, pencils, rubbers, etc. She runs her business in her local school which guarantees her a ready market for her goods. Through a great deal of hard work she has managed to build a small brick house which is her main asset. She wants to continue improving her family's living conditions and so she is applying to FUSAI for this loan to have an electricity supply installed (as she does not have one at present). She will also use it to buy bricks, cement and sand, as she also wants to build a retaining wall. She very much hopes that this help will be forthcoming.
