Estela Del Carmen's story

Estela is 26 years old and lives in her own house with her husband and young son, who is 6 years old. Estela is an enterprising woman who does everything that she can to give her family a better life than she has had. For some time, Estela has made a living selling clothes as a street vendor in various parts of town. With her husband, Estela is able to contribute to the household finances and provide her children with better living conditions. In order to finish building her house, which she started some months ago, Estela is applying for a loan from FUSAI to buy door and windows, which she could not afford. She wants to finish the house as soon as possible so that the family can move into it.
