A loan of $400 helped to install drinking water and to buy metal fencing for her home.


Zulma Lissette's story

Zulma is 19 years old and has a business together with her mother: a shop that is their main source of income. They have had the shop for two years and thanks to her charisma and good customer service, many people choose her and every day more people come in search of her products. Zulma has made the decision to ask for this loan from FUSAI to pay to install drinking water and to build a metal fence at her home to make her family and her merchandise safer.
