Maria Julia's story

Julia, who is 47 years old, is a very conservative woman. She studied until the third grade of basic education. She is a single mother, her son works for Christian radio, and is about to graduate with a degree in psychology. She lives in her employer’s house with her son and the granddaughter of her boss. Julia has worked since she was 13 doing housework. When she was 18, she was hired by her current employer, and now she has been working there for 30 years. She is almost considered as part of the family. The requested loan is to purchase a house that her relatives have built on her land, and now she wants to sell the plot of land, but first, she must buy the house from her relatives. Julia dreams of having her own home, where she can live with her son independently.
