Name of Solicitor: Open Arms Church, La Concepcion

Project Justification: 

I am a single mother with 5 children. I do not have a living space of my own. I live in a house with an aunt and all my children. I do not have a job or a source of income which all makes it difficult for me to construct my own house.

General Objective: 

The construction of a living space to raise my children in a place that is dignified and safe to live.
