Juana Marina
Juana Marina is 52 years old. She has a 20 year old son who is currently studying medicine, and a 14 year old daughter who is in middle school. Juana is separated from her husband, who does not contribute toward the payment of the family's expenses. Although she has a job in the Health Center in her hometown of Tampico, Tamaulipas, her salary does not cover the expenses of the household and her children's education. Recognizing the necessity to earn a little extra income, she decided to open her own clinic five years ago in a neighborhood very close to her home. Little by little she has been expanding her clientele and earning the confidence of her patients.

At this time Juana needs a loan of $650 which she will use to buy a scale for weighing babies and a nebulizer, because she has lots of patients with respiratory problems. She needs your help to be able to offer better attention to her patients and to help her family. Please support her.

Actualmente Juana se encuentra separada de su esposo, quien no contribuye con los gastos de su familia. Aunque tiene un empleo en el Centro de Salud en la ciudad de Tampico, Tamaulipas, de donde son originarios, su salario no es suficiente para los gastos del hogar y de la educación de sus hijos. Por la necesidad de tener un ingreso extra ella decidió abrir su consultorio, hace cinco años, en un local en una colonia popular cerca de su domicilio, poco a poco ha estado ganando clientes y se ha ganado la confianza de sus pacientes.


En estos momentos Juana necesita de un préstamo por la cantidad de $ 650 dólares que empleara en la compra de una báscula para pesar bebés y un nebulizador porque tiene muchos pacientes con problemas respiratorios. Ella necesita de tu ayuda para poder ofrecer una mejor atención a sus pacientes y ayudar a su familia, apóyala.
