A loan of $500 helped to buy milk and salt to make cheese.

Lucia's story

Lucia, 62, lives with her common-law husband and their two children, ages 22 and 15. She makes and sells dairy products, both wholesale and retail. She has been in business for seven years and, thanks to the quality products she sells and the charm with which she attends to the customers, she has been able to gain the trust of many people who prefer dealing with her more and more each day.

Lucia wants to invest in her business so she can meet more demand and improve her earnings. Therefore, she is requesting a loan through FUSAI to buy the ingredients she needs such as milk and salt to make cheese to sell. She is sure she can pay back the loan with the income from the business.
