Paula Argentina's story

Paula Argentina A. C. is 39 years and lives in Los Martinez neighborhood. She is married and has three teenagers who are in high school.

They all sell fruits and vegetables, which has been Paula’s work since she was little--she has been making a living from this activity for more than 30 years. The economic problems that bring down the country make the price of raw materials go up and down, resulting in the family's unstable income.

They live in a humble home, and the winter rains destroyed the house’s infrastructure. Paula requests a loan to build a wall that will fortify her home and ensure that her children live in the best place possible, especially the older children that are now asking for personal space. It is vital as parents to have the peace of mind of knowing that their kids can spend their daily lives in a dignified space.
