Maria Gilma's story

María is 59 years old. She lives in her own home with her husband, her oldest son and her 14 year old granddaughter. She is a very hardworking woman who earns a living selling American clothing for women and jewelry, because she has a small business which generates income to get everything necessary for her home. She was also able to get her son ahead and now she receives financial support from him for some of the basic expenses and to get materials for his daughter. Her husband also helps with some expenses. María wants to buy more of a variety of clothing and acquire new jewelry items so that she can improve her income. That is why she is asking for a loan from FUSAI tom invest in shirts, blouses, pants, spandex, dresses, a variety of jewelry, etc., to improve the variety of products that she offers her customers and improve her income.
