Raquel De Los Angeles's story

Raquel is a young woman who, along with her husband, who still works as a taxi driver, strives to support their two children, with the income from her small bookstore business. Her children are under 15, and this has helped her with her their school expenses.

She is applying for her fifth loan, in order to replace the roof, which is in very poor condition. Now that winter is approaching, she wishes to get ready so that they can be comfortable in their home. She will also install tile on the floor of the main room, so that the home looks nice. For this, she needs to buy sheet metal roofing, perlins, tile, cement and other items.
