A loan helped to pay for orthodontic treatment.


Valeria's story

Valeria is a 21-year-old single girl who lives with her parents; and to help with the family finances, she works in a department store.

For two years, her teeth have been very misaligned, so that she does not like her appearance; and now she does not want to let any more time go by, because she feels very embarrassed to smile.

Therefore, she is requesting a loan in order to have the orthodontic treatment done, so that she can get back her self-esteem. She hopes that lenders can help her.
