A loan of $300 helped to buy cement and sand to plaster the walls of her home.


Rubia De Jesus's story

Rubia is 36 years old, a single mother of two boys who are 17 and 12 years old, and a daughter who is 14 years old.

Rubia sells basic commodities such as vegetables, fruit, grain, etc. Her business is located within her home and thanks to her charisma and good products she offers, many people prefer buying from her. For her, the most important things are her children, and she works very hard to provide for them.

The walls of her home are made of adobe which need to be plastered since because of the rains they are deteriorating. Because of this she is requesting this loan from FUSAI to invest in buying cement and gravel to plaster the walls of her house and prove better safety for her children.
