A loan of $950 helped to pay for medical expenses.


Jose Manuel's story

José Manuel O. works as a freight train conductor, which is how he generates income for his family.

His father, now of advanced age, suffers from an infirmity that requires costly treatments.

He wishes to help him, but does not currently have the necessary funds to cover the family’s needs. For this reason, he requests a loan to pay for treatments and medicines to help make his father better.

He plans to repay this loan with his salary as a train conductor.
