A loan of $1,025 helped home Improvement: To whitewash the house.


Petrona's story

Mrs. Petrona A. is applying for her fifth loan to invest in improving her home (whitewashing the house). She has worked at the Hospital Jacinto Hernández as a supervisor for the past 28 years and she has a grown daughter, for whom she took on the role of both mother and father at an early age. She is very responsible, honest and hard-working, and has striven to improve her home bit by bit, located in the urban center of Nueva Guinea, a recently populated neighborhood and growing daily. Petrona is a woman of high spirits both personally and at work, which she loves. Although her daughter does not live with her, she does take care of her very elderly mother. Her dream is to have stability, health and a nice home. Petrona is grateful to AFODENIC for the previous loans which helped her slowly build her home and this way she could bring greater comfort to her family.
