Adelaide has lived in her home for more than 12 years. Her biggest problem is that when it rains water comes in through the windows and the front porch gets flooded. It also causes a dampness problem, since she has a sick child and the dampness harms his health too much. She is requesting a loan of $700 to be able to make repairs on her home before the rainy and cold seasons come.
