A loan of $300 helped purchase galvanized sheet metal and wood to build a small house.


Bertha Eligia's story

Bertha is 62 years old and lives in her own home with her husband who is a day laborer, and their two children. Bertha works selling a variety of fresh fruits such as: jocotes, bananas, pineapples, etc. This is how she earns a living and provides for their home. Bertha hopes to improve her housing conditions as their home is small and the structure is in poor condition. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from FUSAI to invest in the construction of her home made of galvanized sheet metal and wood. She hopes to be able to secure this funding as she hopes to improve her family's living conditions.
