A loan of $250 helped to pay for medical expenses for her parents.


Ma Santos's story

Ma. Santos is requesting a loan since she has a health problem, because she wants to help her parents, who live in the state of Veracruz and are in poor health. They are older and are going through an emergency situation, since one of her parents is in delicate health.

With this loan she will help them with any unforeseen events that come up from the illness.

Ma. Santos has been working for two years as a production worker in a "maquiladora" [factory in a free-trade zone]. Her husband has been an auto mechanic in their home for more than 20 years. She has four school-age children whom they want to give everything they need for a better future.
