Maria De La Paz's story

María is 26 years old and lives in her father's house with her life partner and two children, aged nine and six years old. For two years, María has been working in a bakery and earns a monthly income which helps her to support the household economy. María wants to improve her living conditions and so wants to build a bedroom on her father's land. He has given María a space to build this room. María has applied for a loan from FUSAI in order to buy bricks, cement, sand, and gravel in order to start construction work and to move her children into the room as soon as possible .
