A loan of $1,200 helped to pay for his wife's eye surgery.


Bernardino's story

Don Bernardino is an elderly gentleman who is 61 years of age. He has been married to Olga for 24 years and they have four children, all of whom are currently married. Bernardino and his wife live to the west of the city of Monterrey with a granddaughter they have been taking care of since she was one month old. For the past 25 years, he has been managing an herb shop so that his family can get ahead.

His wife Olga began having problems with her sight, which led to a loss of vision that has affected her life. She still manages to help with the bills at the herb shop and with taking care of their granddaughter. His wife needs surgical treatment to help restore her vision and avoid having someone to help her go about her daily activities.
