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

A loan helped to pay for comprehensive dental treatment.

Amparo's story

Amparo, age 64, is a widow. She lives in the Juarez municipality in Nuevo Laredo. She has been a merchant for five years. She has her own food business. The business is the support for her and her daughter. Amparo went to the clinic with her daughter for a dental check up. They both have dental problems and were diagnosed as needing comprehensive dental treatment. They have been made fun of by people around them.

As they do not have enough resources to pay in cash, Amparo is requesting a loan to be able to be taken care of right away. They are very enthusiastic to start the treatment as soon as possible. This is something that Amparo's daughter has also wanted for a long time. However, they have not had the chance to do so and to be able to have a better quality of life.
