Maria Elena's story

Maria Elena is a very admirable woman since she is 51-years-old and never tires of her work and struggle for a better life. She lives in a house she owns with her husband who makes his living as a laborer, helping to sustain the economy of their home. Maria has managed to make a little shop in her place of residence which has been her source of income for a long time. She wants to make some adjustments in her home because, over time, the roof has deteriorated. She also wants to finish a room that was started but not completed. She has applied for this credit from FUSAI to invest in buying galvanized metal, wood, brick, sand, and cement. She trusts that her earnings from the store will allow her to repay this loan.
