Maria De Lourdes
Maria is a woman who is dedicated to her work in a cafe. She was able to establish the cafe several years ago, and she makes a variety of food for it. This has helped her husband to cover the basic expenses. He is a taxi driver, and there are days when he has few customers.

That is why she took the initiative to work in order to get income. Through the years she has been improving her house. She has done that with the help of a loan through the institution. It is the only way to be able to build because everything is expensive.

She will use the loan to build a room for privacy and to be more comfortable. Her house is small. She will buy stone, ten zinc sheets, ten bags of cement, iron, buttresses, and other things to start the work.

Her plans are to keep working and to achieve economic equilibrium to cover her payments.
