Zabdi Maahrai's story

Zabdi is 27 years old and lives in her own house with her partner and their two children, ages 7 and 2. She is a very hard-working woman who does any work she can lay her hands on to give her family what they need. She has worked in a pupuseria (store selling filled corn tortillas) for four years and together with her partner maintains a home. Zabdi wants to build a room to use as a kitchen and living room. She is asking for this loan from FUSAI to buy cement, sand, bricks, iron, and for labor so as to begin construction as soon as possible.
