A loan of $800 helped to pay for his friend's operation.


Antonio's story

Antonio lives in the city of Monterrey, he is 63 years old and for 25 years has been married to Pascuala, with whom he has four children. For Antonio, friendship is very important, so he wants to support a friend named José Alberto who suffered an accident injuring a food. Due to the urgency, his friend did not have enough resources to pay for the operation he needed and, so, to prevent greater damage to his limb. So, he asked for a loan to support his friend by paying for the operation, trusting that soon he will recover and be able to walk without difficulty.
