Petronila's story

Petronila is a single mother. Her chidren are already adults and live independently. She used to work washing and ironing clothes. She now works as a housekeeper and her children help her. She has rooms to rent as well which provide extra income to cover expenses. Her home is humble and little by little she has made improvements with loans. The loan she is requesting will be used to purchase construction materials: cement, sand, iron, roof beams, concrete blocks, and zinc plates to construct an addition to her home that will be a kitchen.
