Hortencia Del Carmen's story

Hortencia continues to work in her commercial activity, selling tortillas. She makes these herself in her home. Her children are on their own and she and her husband fight to get ahead with the expenses. He helps with the financial support of his pension, which he receives monthly. Hortencia requires the loan to buy materials such as zinc sheeting and beams to be able to change the roof on her house. It doesn't have the conditions necessary for living there.
