Janina De Los Angeles
Janina is in charge of imports for a private company. She has been working there for three years, and manages to support her parents, as she still lives with them. She is single, and plans to take a course in English.

Her goal has been to have a better roof for her parents, and she opted for a loan to build her own room, which is still not finished. But it is also really important for her to put a roof on the area behind the house. This will consist of a covered porch and tiled area. This is because water is getting into the house, and they want to deal with that situation.

She will buy construction materials such as zinc sheeting, purlins( structural roof members), sheet metal screws, cement, and iron, then start construction. This is the most viable approach, as she is spreading out her costs, and continuing to support her parents. In the process, she is completing her own home.
