Maria De La Luz's story

María de la Luz works selling ice cream and other frozen products. Because it is the hot time of year, her sales are excellent. Her husband Gerardo works as a mechanic in a workshop in the city.

The two of them live in the home of Irene, who is the mother of María de la Luz. This is why they wish to undertake this project, which involves building and installing windows and floors, as well as plastering the house. She will build a larger sleeping area, as they are sleeping in a very small bedroom.
