A loan of $425 helped to pay for his medical exams.


Lauro Abel's story

Lauro Abel is young, single, responsible, and independent. He works in a factory with a minimal salary, and he is currently paying for a house. He lives alone, but he needs to help his mother out with a general medical exam that she needs to have. She lives in another state in the Republic of Mexico, and he needs to send her money as soon as possible, since his mother's health depends on having the medical exam that she should be having. He is the only son and he feels responsible for supporting his mother as much as he possibly can.
