A loan helped to pay for the operation for her husband so he can resume normal activity.

Anonymous's story

The woman lives in the city of Tarija. She is a businesswoman and has a small store in the area of San Antonio. She has been married for more than 20 years, and they have a daughter who is still in school.

For a while, her husband felt a pain in the lower right area of his abdomen. He continued doing his daily activities, but suddenly the pain got much worse, so he had to go to a private clinic (the family does not have health insurance). He was seen by a doctor who specializes in this area of the body and who was able to give him a very specific diagnosis: he must undergo surgery for acute pancreatitis, acute colitis, a bile duct stone, sepsis, and gas gangrene.

Her husband is an important pillar of their family circle, since he generates income for them and provides security for them in their home. Because of this, it is the concern and need of the family to get financing in order to carry out this medical intervention and help her husband recover well.
