Petrona Del Carmen
In ancient Greece, they knew nothing about viruses and bacteria. Plato remarked that a good education is that which is reflected in improving one's mind together with one's body by recognizing, in some way, that bodily health leads to mental hygiene, as does doña Petrona Díaz. Doña Petrona is a 48-year old woman dedicated to her work and her family. She tells us that she wants to continually improve her humble home. Her next goal is to make a small investment in her home to make some improvements. She is requesting a loan to build a bathroom of better hygienic condition than the one she currently has. She feels that the requested loan will be a great help to her, as she will be able to improve the health, hygiene and life conditions of her family. Her future plans are to systematically remodel her home.

En la antigua Grecia nada se sabía de virus y bacterias, Platón remarcaba que la buena educación es la que se reflejaba con fuerza a mejorar la mente juntamente con el cuerpo. Reconociendo, de alguna manera, que la salud corporal conduce a la higiene mental como lo hace Doña Petrona Díaz, una Señora de 48 años de edad, dedicada a su trabajo y su familia nos revela que desea la mejora continua de su humilde vivienda; nos dice que su meta más próxima es hacer una pequeña inversión en su casa para la mejora de la misma; solicitando un crédito para la construcción de un servicio sanitario que presente las mejores condiciones higiénicas que el que posee actualmente; estimando que el crédito a solicitud le será de mucha ayuda ya que mejorara las condiciones de salud, higienes y de vida de su familia; teniendo como planes futuros la remodelación sistemática de su vivienda.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
