A loan of $500 helped to buy bricks, laminate sheets, cements, sand. and to pay labourers to start building a hall in her home.


Maria Esperanza's story

María is 57 years old and lives in her own house with her partner. For a long time now María has been making a living offering services doing domestic chores. This work has allowed her to bring home an income and help her partner, a builder, with the household bills. María wants to build a hall in her home. She does not currently have one and this poses problems in times of rain or sun. María is applying for a loan from FUSAI in order to buy bricks, laminate sheets, cements, sand. and to pay labourers to start building the hall she so desperately needs.
