René Ovidio


A loan of $975 helped get corrective surgery for a burn contracture on his left index finger.


René Ovidio's story

Rene, his parents, and two siblings, all work in their small family-run business. They sell toys, school supplies and non-perishable food products to local community members from their home. A few years ago Rene's mother was ironing the family's clothes when, in a brief moment, wanting to assist his mother, Rene grabbed the hot iron severely burning his index finger. In time this cause his finger to curl into his hand because of the resultant burn scar contracture. As a result Rene is unable to grasp different objects securely with his left hand. This loan will enable reconstructive plastic surgery to restore his hand function including the use of tools.
