A loan of $400 helped to buy laminated sheeting, nails, cement, sand, and gravel to build a hallway in her house.


Maria Elizabeth's story

María, 41, lives in her own house with her life partner and their two daughters, ages 17 and 12. Family is most important to her, and she does everything she can to improve her family's living conditions. María has been doing housework for others for five years to help her husband pay household expenses.

She wants to finish renovating her house, as it currently doesn't have a hallway, which makes the house uncomfortable when the sun is strong or when it's raining. So she has applied to FUSAI for a loan to buy laminated sheeting, nails, cement, sand, and gravel to build a hallway and pour cement in her house and improve their living conditions.
