Julio Cesar's story

Julio Cesar is 48 years old and single. He's been employed at a business for a long time, and lives with his mom in Mexico City.

Some time ago his mom was diagnosed with a chronic degenerative disease, which is affecting her left eye and making it difficult for her to carry out normal activities. Unfortunately the family does not have sufficient resources, so Julio Cesar applied for a loan so that his mom can be treated as soon as possible. He has faith that she will soon recover and be able to enjoy the company of her family.
