A loan of $400 helped to buy construction materials to build a porch.


Bernarda's story

Bernarda, 46, lives in her own home with her husband and family. She is a very hardworking woman who is known for her honesty and responsibility. Bernarda has a business making and selling tortillas. She also has a small store in her home. These businesses are essential to the finances of her household, because her husband is a small farmer and his harvest comes only once a year, which means that his sales are made only in one season. Thanks to both of their efforts, the family is getting ahead and striving to improve their living conditions.

Bernarda wants to build a porch on her house so that water doesn't enter the home when it rains and damage their minimal belongings. This is why she is requesting this loan from FUSIA to invest in the purchase of sheets of metal roofing material, wood, sand and cement.
