Mille Manuela's story

Mille, 48, lives in Primavera de Duran (an area now on the outskirts of the city, whose natural ecology is fast disappearing.) She has some apartments that she rents to cover the household expenses. To help her husband with the household expenses she began to work and save money to build some apartments and rent them. Gradually, with the help of her husband, she was able to have her apartments. Now she manages the apartments. This has helped her to have time with her family and assure the economic stability of her daughter. With the loan she wants to buy cement and paint to recondition the apartments. In the future she wants to finish building her house.
