Norma Veronica's story

Norma Veronica is a very responsible woman who used to live with her parents and she helped them with expenses. But they died some years ago. In gratitude for her aid, they willed the house and land where she currently lives to her. But now, the house is somewhat deteriorated and for that reason, she wishes to begin reconstruction, starting with the bathroom which is in the worst condition. Consequently Norma is requesting a loan to carry out improvements, including masonry, painting, and installing new plumbing fixtures, including a shower. To do this, she needs to buy the necessary construction materials for her project to be completed.
