A loan helped to pay for dental treatment.


Ofelia's story

Ofelia works in a factory. She suffers from dental problems. When she chews her food she constantly bites herself. She has even been bleeding from the constant bites.

She urgently needs dental treatment to correct her bite. Due to this problem she has stopped eating well, which makes her feel a little tired and sick. This has also affected her job performance. This worries her because she needs her earnings to pay for the family expenses in addition to helping her mother support her younger siblings.

Ofelia requested a loan in order to be able to pay for the dental treatment that she needs without affecting her financial situation. This way she will continue working to get her family ahead.
