Ilona's story

Ilona is a 38-year-old woman who is divorced. She has two children: an 11-year-old daughter and a 2-year-old son. She works as a foreign language teacher in a college and lives with her children in a one-room apartment that needs repairs. She also needs to buy furniture for the children.

From her salary, she is currently unable to finish the repairs and provide the children with the necessary conditions they need.
