A loan helped to pay for orthodontic treatment.


Sonia's story

Sonia is 48 years of age. She is married, has one child, and has worked for four years in an institution. Sonia is very worried about her dental health, because she has neglected it while tending to her child's necessities. She doesn't want to let more time go by, because each time she smiles she has to cover her mouth, and this is affecting her self-esteem.

She needs orthodontic treatment, but unfortunately the salary she receives won't cover it. However, it was suggested to her that she apply for a loan in order to start treatment as soon as possible, so that afterwards she will be a more secure person. This will provide a good example for her child and above all she'll be able to smile without embarrassment or having to cover her mouth.
