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

A loan helped to pay for his father-in-law's eye surgery.

Humberto's story

Humberto is 27 years old, married to Yuliana, and has three children. For the past year, he has been working for a company as an executive.

Humberto’s father-in-law needs to have eye surgery because he is struggling to see. Unfortunately, he does not have sufficient resources, so Humberto wants to help him by requesting a loan so that he can undergo surgery immediately. His father-in-law lives alone, so Humberto hopes the procedure will go well so that he can have a better quality of life.
