A loan of $1,650 helped to pay for medical expenses.


Silvia Geily's story

Silvia is married and has two young children. She is living in the house of her mother, who is sick, and Silvia is caring for her. She is requesting the loan to buy hospital furniture that her mother needs to move. These are a special bed, a wheelchair, and a hospital commode. Her mother hurt her spine and is very delicate because of her age. Silvia wants her mother to improve from her illness, for this furniture to make it easier for her not to hurt herself, and for her mother's recuperation to be quick. She plans to pay back the loan with the pension she receives from the government. Her husband will help her with the family expenses with the salary he receives from his job with a government institution.
