A loan of $925 helped payment of school tuition, purchase of uniforms and a used computer.


Maria Sonia Patricia's story

Sra. María Sonia is now an older woman, and lives with her husband. They have one daughter and one son, who also lives with them. The daugher is working in a company in the city and helps her mother with the household expenses, and their son studies in prep school. It is for him that Sra. María Sonia needs the loan, to be able to pay tuition for her son's school. She will also use it to purchase uniforms that the school requires, and wants to buy a used computer because in this stage of his schooling he must use the computer. More than anything it will be used so that her son will continue to study, since he wants to succeed and be a professional; she did not have the money or support when she was young to continue to study and she wants her children to be able to do so.
