Cinthia lives in the Candelabra area of the Colomi Municipality. She is 19 years old, has a cohabiting relationship, and has a small daughter. She is financially independent due to farming, planting 2 hectares of communal land with potatoes, oca and beans, rotating the crops, as she has experience in this work.

She needs a housing construction loan as she currently lives in her parents’ home and it is in a state of disrepair and with the rainy season it’s deteriorating more and there are more leaks in the roof. Therefore, she wants to build two small rooms in order to live more comfortably with all her family, improving the conditions in which they find themselves.
