Maria Guadalupe's story

Maria Guadalupe resides in Distrito Federal. She is 51 years old and a single mother with two grown children. Maria Guadalupe teaches at a local school, which is how she supported her children.

Her mother Angelina has vision problems with her left eye. She went in for a medical evaluation and it was recommended that she have surgical treatment. Unfortunately, Maria Guadalupe is not able to cover this expense, so she has requested a loan to pay for her mother’s operation. She is confident that the surgery will restore her mother’s vision.
