Maria Jose's story

María José lives in the the Managua barrio. She is 28 years old. She is a single mother to her six-year-old son, who is attending school. María José works full time as a cashier in a used clothes shop. Her priority is to improve the condition of her house, where the roof has become deteriorated due to rust - this is causing water to leak in when it rains. María José is applying for a loan in order to buy zinc sheets and purlins which will give her and her son a secure roof to live under.
