A loan helped to pay for dental treatment.


Samuel Manuel's story

Samuel, age 44, lives with his wife and children to the north of the city of Monterrey. In order to get ahead with the family finances, he works for a private security company.

He lost some teeth some time ago. This makes it very difficult for him to chew his food. Also, it is very noticeable, which causes him embarrassment with his work colleagues and friends.

Due to the lack of resources, he has not been able to take care of it. That is why he requested a loan to be able to pay for dental implants and to improve his image in this way.
