Angélica has an unfinished construction project. She and her husband have been working hard to finish this room but they lack the money to build the roof and to plaster and paint their house. Consequently they are applying for a loan today so they can purchase the materials they need.
They need to use that room because the house is very small and their family is uncomfortable. Her 17 year-old adolescent son has been asking them for his own room for privacy. She will appreciate the support provided.
