Señora Dionicia is 49 years old. She is married and has one son who is 12 years old. Her work is cleaning and sweeping the streets. She works for a public institution. This loan is her first one with this institution. Señora Dionicia is going to use this loan to finish installing water in her home, since she only has a well, and it is a lot of work to carry the water. This way she will have a connection for the bathrooms, shower, and kitchen, and thus she will offer better comfort to her family, since for many reasons her zone does not have basic services. But this will not prevent Señora Dionicia from having potable water in her home. She feels very happy about this opportunity that they are offering her to improve the quality of life of her family.
