A loan of $450 helped to buy galvanized sheet metal, wood and nails to repair the roof of her house.


Elsy Francisca's story

Elsy is 33-years-old and lives in very humble conditions with her family which is made up of her husband and three children who are 13, 9 and 5 years old. Elsy has worked as a domestic cleaner for a long time, allowing her to feed herself and take home money for the family. She wishes to repair the roof of her house because it has worn out over time and is not very safe anymore. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from FUSAI to invest in the purchase of galvanized sheet metal, wood and nails so that she can start the repairs as soon as possible.
