A loan of $550 helped to buy a door and balconies for her house.


Maria Victoria's story

Maria is 40 years old and lives in her own house together with her three children aged 17, 15 and 12. Maria works as a waitress in a coffee shop in a local business and this is how she makes a living and sustains her household.

Maria wants to improve the security of her house as at the moment it does not have doors or balconies in the windows. Maria is requesting this loan from FUSAI to invest in buying a door and balconies to protect the few belongings she has and to provide her family with increased safety.
