Sra. Angélica, 41 years old, has worked as a domestic employee for 20 years. She has two children, who are 17 and 12 years of age and who are currently in school.

Angélica has an unfinished construction project. She and her husband have been working hard to finish this room but they lack the money to build the roof and to plaster and paint their house. Consequently they are applying for a loan today so they can purchase the materials they need.

They need to use that room because the house is very small and their family is uncomfortable. Her 17 year-old adolescent son has been asking them for his own room for privacy. She will appreciate the support provided.
