I'm Damaris Cortes, 39 year old woman. Resident of Cayey, Puerto Rico.
On the night of September 19-20 of 2017, Hurricane Maria, a category 5, passed through Puerto Rico leaving thousands and thousands without their homes; including me. The house my mother left me (she passed away), got very damaged. I lost most of my belongings, at least 65-75%. Sadly FEMA isn't helping the way it should. They think I can repair my entire home, acquire new furniture and rent for two months with $8,857.42. They denied the appeal. The construction company estimate is $35,500, for the house. And the estimate to repair the electricity is $650.00 - $1,600.00
I'll use the funds to pay the house repair and buy household goods. At the moment I'm looking at other construction companies, looking for a cheaper price. Pardon my english grammar, isn't my native tongue. I'm doing this myself. I have no help here. I'm the type of person who never ever asks for help unless in extreme desperate situation. Hurricane Season starts on June 1, 2018 and the most dangerous months are August-October. I need to repair quickly, before losing what's left. Feel free to message me for any questions.
