A loan of $825 helped to pay school tuition.

Álvaro's story

Álvaro’s asking for a loan to pay school tuition because he does not have enough money to pay it and he does not want this to affect his family. His daughters will be able to continue studying and preparing themselves so that they can become professionals in the future.

Álvaro works as a truck driver for a large company. He’s able to cover household expenses with the salary he earns as well as being able to provide the occasional treat to his family members. His wife does household chores and sometimes works as a seamstress using the extra income to help her husband cover expenses.
