Currently the floor is simply made of earth but, for the health and comfort of his family, José will make every effort to make these improvements to this house. So, for this reason, José in applying for a loan in order to buy cement, sand, gravel and other items. With this work, he is more than sure that his family will be happier as this dream becomes a reality.
