Ana Karin's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay for nose surgery to improve her breathing.

Ana Karin's story

Ana is a young woman who is 23 years of age, single, and has been employed for the past year. She has suffered from sleep apnea for some time and needs to have surgery on her nose. Her condition has had a significant effect on her daily life since she often feels tired. The surgery will help to improve her breathing.

Unfortunately, Ana does not have sufficient funds to pay for the operation. For this reason, she is requesting a loan so that she can undergo surgery and have a better quality of life.
