A loan of $1,425 helped to pay for her father's medical expenses.

Rosa Elena's story

Rosa Elena is requesting a loan again because of a problem with her father’s health. She wants to help him buy medication and to have the operation. They found tumors in his stomach.

Rosa Elena has been widowed for a short time. She lives with two adult children who help her with the family expenses. She has income from her work at a factory, and she receives a pension for being a widow. Also, on the week-ends she sells used clothes outside of her house. She plans on repaying the loan with these incomes.

She wants her father to get better and recuperate quickly. That is why she needs the loan. This way they can operate on her father.
