A loan of $350 helped pay for school costs.


Magdalena's story

Magdalena is a single mother with one daughter in her care. She is originally from the city of Veracruz but has lived in Nuevo Laredo for more than 10 years. Magdalena asks for a loan to cover her daughter's schooling needs because she doesn't have enough money to pay the fees and buy the uniform that she needs to attend this school year. She wants her daughter to be well-educated so that she can triumph in life.

Magdalena works at a mall as a saleswoman and in her free time she sells shoes from a catalog. This is the income that she has to get ahead and give her daughter what she needs, and she plans to use this to pay back her loan.
