Silvia Cristina's story

Thirthy-eight-year-old Silvia lives in her own home with her husband and her five-year-old son, and she also cares for her beloved mother. Silvia has a small store in her home and she sells candy, soft drinks, bottled water, cut fruit, French bread, sweet bread, etc. Silvia's husband has worked as a gardener for a construction company for six years. Silvia has received a FUSAI loan to buy cement, sand, gravel, iron, and brick to build a room that is currently made of wood (as can be seen in the photograph).
