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

A loan helped to pay for a comprehensive dental treatment.

Sandra Janeth's story

Sandra is a 35-year-old individual who lives in Juarez, N.L. She has a 7-year-old son who, for some time, has felt aches and pains in his teeth.

For this reason, she took him to the dental clinic for a check-up, and his diagnosis is that he needs comprehensive dental treatment to put an end to the discomfort.

Unfortunately, however, Sandra does not have sufficient resources to pay in cash. Therefore, she is requesting a loan so that her son can begin with the treatment as soon as possible and can continue with his normal life.
