Silvia Carolina's story

Silvia is 33 years old and has a great entrepreneurial spirit. For four years, she has had a little business where she sells sweet bread and breakfasts. With much effort, she is raising her three children, ages 9, 6, and one month. With the goal of improving her living conditions and those of her children, she has made the decision to construct a small room, for which she needs materials such as bricks, cement, sand, gravel, and iron and to pay for labor for the construction of the room as soon as possible.
