A loan of $500 helped to buy construction materials.


Maria Felix's story

María, 61, works in her tortilla business, which is her main source of income. María's a strong and responsible woman because she got her daughter ahead on her own. Her daughter's an adult and they live together, along with María's two grandchildren.

María's living conditions are very modest because with the income she earns from selling tortillas she can only cover her daily support and other unexpected expenses. She's requesting this loan from FUSAI to repair her roof and the floor, which is currently made of dirt.

With the loan she'll buy the materials she needs to make the necessary improvements: galvanized metal sheeting, wood, cement, sand, and gravel.
