A loan of $500 helped to buy metal sheets, cement, sand, gravel, stones, and beams to build a bathroom, replace the roof, and cement the patio floor of her house.


Maria Digna's story

Digna, 47 years of age, lives with her three children who are 12, 19, and 25 years of age. A 4-year old grandson also lives with them.

She is an enterprising woman who has made her living selling beauty products from different catalogs for 3 years. Her daughter also helps with family expenses.

Digna wishes to build a bathroom, since they don't currently have one. She also needs to cement the patio and to replace the roof of her house. This is why she is applying to FUSAI for a loan in order to buy metal sheets, cement, sand, gravel, stones, and beams so that she can make these improvements to her home.
