A loan of $300 helped to buy wood, metal sheeting, nails, and a door to improve the roof of her home.

Marta Alicia's story

Marta, age 19, is the single mother of an 8-month-old daughter. The house she lives in together with her daughter and family is simple, but it is her own. Marta is a hardworking young woman who earns her living working in a nearby supermarket in her neighborhood.

Marta wants to improve the condition of her home, so she has made the decision to ask for a loan from FUSAI. She will invest the loan in the purchase of metal sheeting, wood, and nails to change the roof of the house, because it is in bad shape. Also, she wants to buy a metal door to make her home more secure.
