Patricia's story

Patricia is 39 years old. She has three children who are 8, 5 and 19 years old. She sells a variety of products. This business is going well for her. This loan is her first with the institution. Patricia lives in the locality of Tiquipaya where basic services and water are scarce. The majority of the time, water is bought from the water wagons that offer water in each area for a modest price. Therefore, she is requesting this loan to construct a bathroom with a water tank, in order to be able to have a water reserve, since one of the principal reasons for the construction of a water tank is to store and distribute the water along with the construction of water pipes that lead to the bathroom, shower and kitchen. This is of great utility, since the water wagons come by once a week and her family is often without water and this basic element is essential in every home. With the construction of this bath, Patricia will greatly improve their quality of life, which is why she is grateful for this opportunity provided to her.
