Reyna Isabel

El Salvador
El Salvador / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $700 helped to buy galvanised sheets, tiles and wood and to pay for labour to repair the roof of her house.


Reyna Isabel's story

Reyna, who is 26 years old, lives in her own house with her husband. They live in very basic conditions and she and her husband are always looking for ways to gradually improve their conditions. Reyna is an enterprising woman who decided two years ago to start selling French bread. Every day she gets up very early to go out selling the delicious bread which is steadily growing in demand.

Reyna wants to improve the conditions in her home because the roof has deteriorated due to the sun and rain. She is asking for this loan from FUSAI to buy galvanised sheets, tiles and wood and to pay for labour. She hopes to get this support as she does not have the capital to cover the outlay, but she will be able to pay the resulting loan instalments with what she earns in her business.
