A loan helped to pay for her husband's expenses who had heart surgery and pay for post-operation treatment.


Anonymous's story

The husband of this woman (both in the picture) lives in the South sector of Cochabamba. He is the father of a family with two school-aged children. He works as a Mariachi in a group that performs in the city and in the provinces. He received a health assessment of his heart that he needed surgery immediate or he risked losing his life. He underwent two surgeries, one replacing his aortic value and the other bypass surgery.

Because of his work the woman's husband has no social security. This forced the family to get resources from people who make money through the suffering of others. They are desperate as the family finances are in a dire state. He can't work until he has recuperated and this is not going well in the short term as he is very concerned for his debt and his feeling of having presented his wife and children with an onerous responsibility.
