Valentina
The Roman abilities for engineering combined with an obsession with cleanliness gave origin to important public water and sewage systems. The Romans didn't understand why healthy conditions were important, but they cautioned that diseases should be addressed in this manner.

Valentina will not be an exception to Roman thought. She is a 60-year-old woman and the mother of three children who are already independent, and she works as a librarian. She has the immediate goal of buying sheets of zinc to renovate the roof of her home. She is asking for a loan to improve the condition of her home by the construction of a bathroom with excellent hygienic conditions. She estimates that the loan requested will be a lot of help to her as she will be able to use her bathroom with more security, without fear of getting stung by dangerous animals.

Revealing her plans for the future, she wants to keep investing in her small home to be able to have a home that provides her with excellent safety conditions.
