Adela's story

Adela is a single mother of a teenage boy and together they live in Totolapan, Morelos. Adela has lived with her parents all her live. Since her son was born, she has fought about moving out, but realized that she did not have enough money saved to do so. Since then, with a lot of effort, she started saving little by little. After 16 years she finally saved enough to buy the land in which she will start the construction of the first room of her house. Adela has an informal job and makes around $800 USD a month. Given this, she is not able to go to traditional banks for a credit. Adela is asking for a credit to buy the construction materials to start building. She will be trained and supervised by technicians and architects from Ecoblock. Adela wants to make sure that the first step she takes is one that will last forever. Adela also wants to make things right so one day her son can continue living in this house with his future family. Adela has been working almost 16 years for this moment
