A loan of $425 helped to pay for a course for his Masters degree in English.

Alfonso's story

Alfonso is from the city of Tampico Tamaulipas and has lived in the city of Nuevo Laredo for many years. Alfonso has been an English teacher in two primary schools in this city for the past 6 years. His wife Esmeralda is also a primary school teacher, and they have two school-aged children. With their income as teachers they are able to pay for school and other family maintenance expenses. Alfonso would like to get ahead and be able to provide his family with a better quality of life, and as a result would like to take an English course for his Masters degree. His children and wife are very supportive and love that he is continually trying to get ahead by his own efforts.
