A loan of $450 helped buy sand, gravel, and cement, and to pay laborers to repair the access road to her home.


Ofelia Buenaventura's story

Ofelia is 50 years old and lives with her two children who are 19 and 17 years old. She is an entrepreneurial woman who makes a living as a fruit vendor, which she has done on a traveling basis for 25 years at the central market. Her husband had to emigrate abroad to try to give her and her children a better quality of life.

Ofelia wants to build a pathway with stairs to reach her home because, as seen in the picture, it is currently inaccessible. She is requesting a loan from FUSAI to buy sand, gravel, and cement, and to pay laborers to repair the access road to her residence.
