Mercedes's story

Mercedes is 54 years old and lives in her own house with her husband and son. Mercedes makes a living selling tortillas, and this is her main source of income. With her husband, Mercedes is able to support the household. A few months ago the couple started building their home but it is not finished, as they do not have enough money. Mercedes is applying for this loan from FUSAI in order to invest in cement, gravel, sand, bricks, and laminate sheets, in order to finish and live in her home.
