Katherine Patricia's story

Katherine is 21 years old and a single mother. She lives with her son and a nephew, both four years old. Katherine is a very enterprising woman who earns a living doing different things: she washes clothes for people at their homes, she offers manicures and pedicures – also in people’s homes – and also sells mangoes when they are in season. Katherine needs to build a roof over the bathroom and washing area of her home. To do this work, she is applying for a loan from “FUSAI” in order to buy cement, sand, gravel, purlins, and metal sheeting, and to pay labourers.
