Jose Luis's story
José Luis is from Muzquiz, Coahuila, a city where he lives with his wife, Perla, and three children. He works as a laborer at a mining business in his area. Currently, one of his siblings is in a difficult situation due to his wife suffering from an eye disease which prevents her from seeing well, due to a chronic degenerative disease which was diagnosed some time ago. This has affected her daily life since she always needs someone's support to be able to do her daily activities. José Luis wants to support his brother so he asks for a loan to pay for the surgery his sister-in-law needs and, so, to be able to recover her sight.
