Petrono's story

Petrona, 62, never went to school. She has been a widower for nine years. She lives with her granddaughter, aged 14. She has two daughters but they both already live on their own. Petrona has always been a housewife, but was lucky to learn enough about farming from her husband that she could start growing basic grains when he died. She needs the loan to buy sand, cement, and bricks, the aim being to build a wall around her house to avoid further water damage when it rains. Petrona's dream is to have a nice house that is safe for her and her granddaughter to live in.- She also wishes for her granddaughter to graduate from university.
