They own an old house that was built a long time ago. It has never had an overhaul since it was built. In winter, her old house loses heat, and smoke from heating escapes, through the roof and walls. She and her brother together made a small repair, but still it is happening. So she wants to have professional builders make the repairs before this coming winter.
For many years, her family has burned too much coal and other kind of fuels just to stay warm at home in winter. She knows it is the worst thing for their health and the environment. The loan she is taking will be dedicated to buying the building materials to install insulation and repair the walls and roof of her house, and cover the cost for hired builders.
