Hilda Alicia
Sra. Hilda and her family live in a neighborhood where the houses are virtually on top of one another. The wall at the back of her house is very low and her neighbors can easily see over it, so she and her husband are applying for a loan from this institution to build a higher, more secure wall. They're concerned about privacy--when they hang their washing out, for example, all the neighbors know--and they want to carve out a space that's wholly their own. They're also concerned about security and a higher wall will make it more difficult for thieves to break in to their house.
