Moris's story

Morís is 45 years old and lives in his privately-owned house with his wife and four children. He is feisty and responsible and works so that his family does not need for anything. Morís currently makes a living selling Mexican tarts near his home, and near to an industrial area of town. He has been doing this work for some years and has regular customers because of his good prices. Morís wants to make some changes to his home, including building two rooms for his daughter. However, he does not have a large enough income for such an investment and so is applying for a loan in order to buy bricks, cement, sand, iron and to pay the labourers who will do the work. With the new rooms, all the family will be safer and more comfortable.
