A loan helped to pay for cataract surgery for an uncle.

Jose Luis's story

Jose Luis is a young, 42 year old man. He has been married to Rocio for 20 years and they have three children.

Jose Luis has worked in a construction company as a welder for a year. His uncle needs eye surgery due to cataracts, and this uncle is struggling to carry out daily tasks. He does not have the resources to pay for surgery.

For this reason Jose Luis wishes to support his uncle by applying for a loan so that his uncle can go ahead with the surgery and have a better quality of life.
