A loan of $1,500 helped cover expenses that his life partner has incurred as she suffers from a heart condition.

Gonzalo Alexander's story

Gonzalo is a 19 year old young man with a high school education. He has a partner and a 6 year old stepson who is in kindergarten, and the three of them live together in a rented home. He has two years of work experience cleaning fish for a company where both he and his partner work everyday in order to earn their daily sustenance.

He now finds himself in need of obtaining a loan in order to cover expenses for his partner, as she suffers from a heart condition. She has never been able to treat this condition until now because the situation was very delicate and dangerous. With this, the couple will be a bit more stable and able to work to provide for his young stepson.

In the future the couple plans to establish an excellent credit history and thereby be able to obtain a loan to be used for building their own home.
