Martina's story

Martina is requesting a loan to have her house waterproofed and painted, as during the rainy season water filters through consequently damaging the roof. Martina wants to prevent this problem from getting to serious and therefore costing more money than estimated. In order to pay for the expenses she works as a make-up artist Mondays to Fridays, and in some occasions she does overtime to make extra money. Martina is a single mother of three children, and she wants them to become good citizens and to reach a better economic status. She will give them the best education she can, acting as both mother and father.

In order to carry out her project she needs to buy construction materials and paint to protect her house.
