A loan of $700 helped to buy bricks, sand, cement and iron bars to change the walls of her house.


Sofia's story

Sofía is 61 years old. She lives in a house that she owns with her grandchildren, aged 16 and 14. Sofía has been working as a housekeeper for a long time. She would like to make some home improvements and this is why she is requesting a loan at FUSAI.

She will buy bricks, sand, cement and iron bars to repair the walls of her house, which are made of bajareque [wattle and daub] and are in bad conditions. She hopes to receive this loan in order to start working as soon as possible.
