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

A loan helped to pay for comprehensive dental treatment for his wife.

Javier's story

Javier is 47 years old. He is married and has worked as an employee in a company for ten years.

Javier came to the clinic with his wife. He is very worried about her, because she is experiencing a great deal of pain in her gums. Martha needs a series of deep cleanings and orthodontia in order to straighten her teeth so that she can have better hygiene.

Javier is very interested in his wife starting treatment as soon as possible, so he is requesting a loan to enable them to pay for her treatment so she can have a better quality of life.
