Mayra's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for orthodontic treatment.

Mayra's story

Mayra, 18, is single and has worked for two years as an employee in a company in her town.

She has suffered severe pain in her teeth for some time, and they're also very misaligned, so she doesn't like her appearance.

She was diagnosed for orthodontic treatment but doesn't have enough money. That's why she's requesting a loan to start the treatment as soon as possible, so she can enjoy a better smile, which will give her more self-confidence.
