Isabel's story

Isabel is fifty-five years old, married and a mother of three children ages twenty-nine, twenty-seven and twenty-five, all of whom are independent. She is actively working at the Ministry of Education, carrying out her duties as a janitor for the last thirteen years. With time, she has succeeded in making improvements to her home, but she is requesting a new loan with the objective of constructing a new room and a bathroom. Since she succeeded in acquiring the property, she has wanted to make these changes, but was prevented by the lack of economic resources. In order to complete the work, she will buy blocks, cement, iron, a porcelain toilet, and other construction materials. Her greatest desire up to this moment is to finish making the improvements to her house in order to have a better quality of life.
