Victor Manuel's story

Victor is a 67-year-old man who is retired and has 3 children. He lives with his wife. For some time, Victor has been detected to have a chronic degenerative disease such that he has been losing his eyesight little by little, owing to this disease.

Victor needs cataract surgery on his eyes, but unfortunately he does not have sufficient resources to pay with cash. Therefore, he is requesting a loan to be able to have the operation as soon as possible so that he can have a better quality of life.
