During 15 years she has been arduously building towards the end. Blanca is happy with what she has achieved. She and her son will soon move to this house, and they will live decently.
For the moment her greatest desire is to install water, and then she will build the floor in this house.

She will use the loan she is requesting to buy fine sand and bags of cement. She also wants to pay the labor expenses for a bricklayer.
