A loan of $400 helped to buy cement, sand, gravel, galvanised sheeting and wood to pave and roof the corridor of her house.


Maria Adela's story

María is 22 and lives in her own home with her husband, who is a day-labourer. She helps him with the household costs. Maria sells clothing in different areas of her local community. As she is an enterprising, responsible and charismatic woman, she has succeeded in gaining the trust of a lot of customers, who are choosing her services more and more frequently.

Her house is very humble, and she is slowly improving it. She is asking for this loan from FUSAI to invest in buying cement, sand, gravel, galvanised sheeting and wood to pave the corridor of her house. At the same time, she is going to roof it, because when it rains the water comes in and causes damage to the few belongings she has.
