Ruth's story

Ruth, 48, is a devoted and proud mother to 3 children, whom she dedicates all her work. Miguel, 48, is her life partner. She is the owner of a house constructed with solid materials, which was built gradually. For 8 years, along with Miguel, they have been running a small vehicle repair shop that they opened on the main floor of their home. Miguel is in charge of vehicle repairs while Ruth does the administration work and is in charge of a small supply store, with which they get to form a great team where love and work are the pillars of the family. They like their work since they are always at house for their children and the influx of vehicles is constant since the repair shop that they run is known as being an honest business.

To make an improvement in the facade of the house, where the repair shop is also located, they wish to proceed with plastering the interior walls.

Their long term objectives are the construction of a third floor and the start in the business of renting rooms to students and workers of organizations. At this time, Ruth is requesting 3.000 Peruvian Soles to contract a bricklayer and in the purchase of cement for the completion of cementing of the house walls.
