Jesús Del Pilar's story

Pilar is 48 years old, lives in Olmedo in the parish of La Tola, and has been in a common-law marriage for 30 years now, from which she has 11 children, the oldest is 29 years old and the youngest is 12. She currently lives with her spouse and with 8 children, her family works at traditional fishing and it is her primary economic activity. The loan is to purchase fishing materials and fix the boat in which they go out to do their work.

Pilar needs to improve her financial situation since she has a child with an mental disability who is 28 years old. He has to do treatments with medicine and therapy at a medical center in the town each month.

She would like to be able to have the necessary resources to be able to treat her child in other, more specialized, hospitals in other cities, but due to the lack of economic resources, this is not possible.
