A loan of $500 helped to buy bricks, cement and sand to build a water basin and get potable water.

Ana Gricelda's story

Ana is 44 years old and lives in her own home with her partner and their three children, who are 13, 11, and 10 years old. Ana works making and selling beautiful hammocks. Along with her partner, who is a farmer, she supports her household and provides her children with what they need.

She currently does not have access to potable water at home. This creates difficulties because the family, including the children, has to go out to the communal water source and then carry water back home, starting in the very early morning. Ana wishes to change this situation, and it is for this reason that she is requesting this loan from FUSAI. She will invest in a connection to a water supply and in the construction of a concrete water basin. She needs to purchase bricks, cement and sand for this purpose.
