A loan of $350 helped to buy galvanized sheet metal, wood, sand, and cement in order to repair the roof and to plaster the walls of her home.


Graciela Isabel's story

Graciela lives in very humble conditions along with her three children who are 21, 4, and 2 years old. She has been separated from her husband for a long time, and is the one who has assumed responsibility for her home. With great difficulty she gets her children ahead in life even though they demand more each day since they are growing and need more attention.

For a long time, Graciela has made a living selling new clothing. This business is her main source of income and is how she manages to get what is necessary to maintain her home. She asks FUSAI for this loan in order to repair her house. She needs to change the roof and plaster the walls because the rain has damaged them. She will invest the loan in the purchase of materials like galvanized sheet metal, wood, sand, and cement. She hopes she can rely on this support and thus be able to provide better housing conditions for her children.
