A loan of $1,200 helped to buy medicine for his daughter.

Javier Wilfredo's story

Javier started out working as a driver with a rented car. Little by little, he saved some money and, with the help of the microfinance institution, was able to buy a car which he now uses at work. His wife works selling fast food. Both are solvent and want to make progress in their businesses, as well as growing as a family.

Now, their youngest daughter is having some health problems. His wife is taking care of their daughter who, apart from being pregnant, is developmentally disabled. Their daughter is 16 years old, and, due to her disability, acts like a 4-year-old. Despite her disability, their parents live a normal day-to-day life. Having a business is a distraction from the hard work they do raising their daughter. No matter what, they love her very much and they are always helping her out.

This loan would relieve the whole family since it will be used to cover some costs of their daughter's care. The family will feel better.
