A loan of $250 helped to buy natural medicine and vitamins for her business..


Maria Cristina's story

Maria is 38 years old and lives in her own home with her spouse and four year old daughter. She makes a living selling natural medicine and vitamins. Maria has been making her sales on foot for six years. She now has many customers and is growing each day. This business is very important for Maria and her family because the income made from the business helps her to complement her household expenses.

With the purpose of improving her and her family's living conditions, she has made the decision to request this loan from FUSAI. She will invest in her business by purchasing the merchandise needed to increase her inventory for her natural medicine and vitamin sales. She hopes to take on a greater share of the market so that she can increase her sales and income.
