A loan of $350 helped to build walls.


Eva América's story

Eva is 40 years old, married, and has five minor children (ages 15, 11, 10, 7, and 2). Her husband works as a security guard in the residential neighborhood. Eva sells minuta (shaved ice to which she adds different fruit flavors, pineapple jelly, tamarind, and other fruit). She makes her sales Monday through Friday and sets up at the entrance to a public school in the settlement where she lives. The walls to her humble home are made of old metal and it’s very deteriorated, so Eva is asking for a loan through FUSAI to build cinder block walls to replace the metal, which doesn’t provide any security for her family. She will use the money to buy 10x20x40cm blocks, iron bars, cement, sand, and other necessary materials to build the walls.
