Piedras Negras, Mexico / Primary/secondary school costs

A loan of $425 helped to pay for university for his daughter.


Mariano's story

Mariano was a police inspector but, due to an accident in the line of duty that broke his back, he can no longer do that job. He was recently given the opportunity to work as a security guard or watchman in a school that was often visited by thieves. He now lives in some rooms at the school. Thanks to sacrifices that he made and lots of knocking on doors, he has been able to send his daughter to school, and this is what he wants a loan for. He and his wife, María, want the best for their daughter who is studying at the university. They need to pay tuition so that she will have a better future.
