Maria Secundina's story

Maria is a 47 year old single mother who lives in her own home with her daughter and her little granddaughter. She makes a living by selling beauty products from a catalogue. Every day she goes to the main areas in her community where she offers her products which are very much in demand. With the aim of improving her living conditions Maria has requested a loan from FUSAI to invest in purchasing bricks, cement, sand and iron so that she can build a small room inside her house.
