Maria Elvira's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay for a gynecological treatment.

Maria Elvira's story

María is 50 years old, married, and lives in the state of Nuevo León. She has worked as an assistant at a hospital for one year.

María has needed a gynecological treatment for some time, but has not paid attention to it and the situation became worse. She needs to take care of it urgently.

Unfortunately, she does not have enough money to pay for a treatment in cash. For this, she asked for a loan so that, in this way, she can get care as soon as possible.
