A loan helped to pay for her son's operation.


Rosa Maria's story

Rosa Maria lives in the Federal District. She is 50 years old and formed a family with her husband and two children. To help the family economy, she works selling athletic items. One of her sons suffered an accident resulting in multiple broken bones, so he had to be brought urgently to a private hospital since he does not have social security. Her son needed emergency surgery which, due to the unexpectedness of the situation, the family did not have the resources to pay for, so Rosa Maria asked for a loan to be able to pay for her son's hospitalization, trusting that soon he will recover and not have any consequences.
