A loan of $1,500 helped to pay off his debt (for the purchase of medicine).

German's story

Germán studied up through high school. He has worked as a taxi driver for more than 11 years. He is single and lives with his parents. In recent months, his mother had an accident that led to the amputation of both her legs. This affected their economic situation considerably. But even under these circumstances, Germán was able to take on the responsibilities and these are being taken care of. His mother, being in bed, became dependent on her son's income. Germán gives her a lot of support for the upkeep of the house and for her medicines. She is still recovering and needs a lot of medicines and care. Germán borrowed money to cover the medical expenses but the interest rate is very high and he wants to pay off this debt with the present loan.
