Petrona Del Carmen's story

In ancient Greece, they knew nothing about viruses and bacteria. Plato remarked that a good education is that which is reflected in improving one's mind together with one's body by recognizing, in some way, that bodily health leads to mental hygiene, as does doña Petrona Díaz. Doña Petrona is a 48-year old woman dedicated to her work and her family. She tells us that she wants to continually improve her humble home. Her next goal is to make a small investment in her home to make some improvements. She is requesting a loan to build a bathroom of better hygienic condition than the one she currently has. She feels that the requested loan will be a great help to her, as she will be able to improve the health, hygiene and life conditions of her family. Her future plans are to systematically remodel her home.
