Idalia, 40, is married, lives in publicly subsidized housing with her husband, and works at a dry cleaner of the town washing clothes. In the afternoons she works with the dry cleaner's owner as a domestic employee. Her husband works as a cook in a restaurant and ten years ago they bought a house with their own savings and a lot of effort. Little by little they have been making improvements to it. When they began the construction of their home they did not think having outdoor stairs would be uncomfortable for them in the future and that they would have to remove them in order to construct them inside. They have the need to build them inside the house since having them outside these days entails a lack of security for the home, and she is requesting the support to be able to carry out her project.
