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

A loan helped to pay for eye surgery.

Aaron's story

Aaron is a young man who is 36 years of age, single, and has a six-year-old child. He has been employed at a local company for the past four years.

Some time ago, Aaron began having problems with his eyes. At first, he did not think it was a big problem, but now he is struggling to see well. Aaron went in for a medical exam and the diagnosis indicated that he needs to have retina surgery. Unfortunately, he does not have sufficient funds to pay for the procedure, so he is requesting a loan in order to proceed with the operation.

Aaron is in urgent need of this surgery so that he can continue working normally.
