A loan of $400 helped to buy metal sheeting, cement pillars, and beams.


Lucia's story

Lucía, 53, is the single mother of two children, ages 25 and 21. She's known as a hardworking, enterprising, and visionary woman because she has a lot of energy and never stops working despite her age. She has earned a living raising and selling chickens for six years. The most important thing to her is her family, which is why she's always looking for ways to improve her living conditions.

Lucía wants to put a porch on her house, which she managed to build with a lot of effort. She's requesting this loan from FUSAI to buy galvanized sheet metal, cement pillars, beams, and the other materials she needs to build the porch as soon as possible.
