El Salvador / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $700 helped to buy windows and pay for fabrication and installation of gutters made from galvanised sheets and downpipes to channel the rainwater.


Glendy Del Carmen's story

Glendy is 34 years old and is a single mother with two children aged 14 and 7 years. She lives in a house which she owns. For 7 years she has had a shop in her home where she sells daily staples such as sugar, salt, beans, rice, sweets etc. This is her main source of income and is how she supports her family.

Glendy wants to improve the condition of her home since the windows have deteriorated over time and are not very secure. She also wants to repair the gutters and downpipes since when it rains her few possessions get wet.

She is asking for this loan from FUSAI to buy windows and to pay for fabrication and installation of gutters made from galvanised sheets and downpipes to channel the rainwater, so she can give her family more security.
