Alma Rosa
Alma Rosa is 42 years old, married and has been working in a convenience store as a cashier for 2 years. She and her husband bought a lot of land on credit 25 years ago. Her husband, a builder by trade, has been slowly constructing on it using their savings. For Alma and her husband Jose to see their house finished is to have their dreams turn to reality, for 25 years ago, what is now their house, was then only a cardboard room where they could shelter their two children. Each wall in this house has great meaning for Alma for each one was built by the hands of her husband, with some help. On one side of the house they have a corridor that floods every time it rains and turns into mud. Alma needs backing to be able to put a solid floor for this corridor to avoid the flooding and be able to get to it even during the rainy season.

Alma Rosa de 42 años es casada, trabaja en una tienda de conveniencia desde hace 2 años como cajera, ella y su esposo hace 25 años compraron en pagos un terreno mismo que su esposo de oficio Albañil fue construyendo poco a poco con ahorros propios. Para Alma y José su esposo el ver su casa terminada es ver sus sueños hechos realidad ya que hace 25 años lo que hoy es su casa en ese entonces era solo un cuartito de cartón en el que ellos podían dar abrigo a sus dos hijos; cada pared de esta casa tiene un gran significado para Alma porque las manos que la han construido son las de su esposo con ayuda. Aun costado de la casa ellos tienen un pasillo y cada que llueve este se inunda y se hace mucho lodo; Alma necesita el apoyo para colocar piso firme en este pasillo y evitar que este se inunde y poder tener acceso a el aun y en épocas de lluvia.
