Maria Auxiliadora's story

María Auxiliadora is 41 years old and lives in the capital city. Her husband works in telecommunications. She is very hard-working and has gotten ahead through her work as a stylist. With her husband's support, she has been building her house little by little in order to give her only son, who is studying, as well as her clients, greater comfort.

She and her husband continue to make improvements to their housing since everything has to be done a little at a time due to insufficient funds. She is now requesting her fourteenth loan in order to put in a ceramic tile floor, for which she needs to purchase putty and cement, and pay for labor.
