Francisco Eduardo's story

Francisco is 56 years of age. He has been married to Gregoria for 30 years and they have 2 children who are already married. His wife takes care of the home, and Francisco has been working at a welding workshop for 5 years.

For some time, his wife has been needing surgery in her right eye, owing to an ocular stroke that she had, because of the disease that she suffers from. But unfortunately, they don't have enough money for her to have the operation.

Therefore, Francisco is requesting a loan so that she can be taken care of immediately, since she struggles hard to see, and so that she can carry out her activities of daily living and have a better quality of life.
