A loan of $500 helped to buy sand, cement, and gravel.

Gladis Elena's story

Gladis, 51, is a single mother of two children, ages 20 and 17. She lives in her own house with her family and her children.

Gladis is a very hardworking and responsible woman. She earns a living making and selling pan dulce [sweet bread] and providing housekeeping services. The most important thing to her is her family, which is why she works hard to get them ahead.

To give her family better living conditions she wants to make some improvements in her house: cement the floor and make a gutter for the rain. This is why she's asking FUSAI for this loan to invest in buying sand, cement, and gravel. She hopes to be able to have this support so she can start the repairs as soon as possible.
