Tone's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to pay for her son's surgery.
Tone is a mother of six children, three daughters and three sons. She is 54 and widowed. The loan that she is requesting from you will be used for an operation on her youngest child. "My son was feeling sick for sometime and when we took him to the doctor they immediately scheduled him for a surgery; we did not have any money saved at that time. This is why we need this loan now, to pay for the surgery, " said Tone to the branch assistant who took down her interview. Tone doesn't own any land where she could plant something, she only has a 300 square meter yard where from which she secures fruits and veggies/grains for the family. Tone receives a type of pension, $96/month, as a widow. Meanwhile, her two daughters work in a fish factory for $186/month each and her son works in a nearby bar cafe for $137/month. Out of the six children only the oldest daughter is married, the other five children live with her.
