FTW Helped Lucia to build a home for her family in Mexico.
Lucía’s husband is the only one who works at the moment, since she dedicates herself to the home and to caring for their two children.
The main reason Lucía and her husband want a house so much is that like all recently married people they now need their own space in order to take care of their children.
Her son goes to kindergarten, and her daughter is still too little to go to school, but when she has grown she plans to take her.
Lucía is sure that her life will change a lot living in her own home, since it will be a dream made real, as any couple will tell you. It is necessary in order to move forward.
Help Lucía and her family achieve the dream of living in their own home. View their fund here: https://www.kiva.org/lend/1012625
