Mario Alberto's story
Mario, 49, is married and lives with his family in the city of Monterrey. To provide for his family, he works as a production manager for a company that manufactures machinery. For him, family is very important. One of his sisters, named Cristina, is currently going through a difficult situation because she is gradually losing her vision due to a disease that has been detected in both of her eyes. She needs surgery for this condition. This is why Mario is requesting a loan so that he can support her by paying for the operation. Mario trusts that with this surgery, his sister will recover her vision and will be able to continue with her life plans.
