Petrona Isabel's story

Petrona Isabel, 36, is married to Melvin Lazo, with whom she has two children: Melvin Antonio, 6, who is in first grade and Isaac, who is still an infant.

Petrona has sold Vogue brand cosmetics for several years; her husband supports her efforts and pays household expenses.

She is asking for her first loan to start building her house because her mother ceded a lot to her so that she could have her own home. She already has some of the materials but still needs to buy cement and iron and must pay the bricklayer labor costs.

Petrona's greatest dream is to see her house completed because this is her parents' legacy to her and she plans to improve it in the future so that her children can have more comfort.
