When Her Daughter Became Ill, FINCA Made a Difference.
Wendy Yesenia Molina de Recinos and her husband thought life couldn’t be going any better. They had a beautiful, three-year-old little girl. Wendy was in her third year at university in Santa Ana, El Salvador, and her husband’s income was enough to keep the family in good stead.
But then their beautiful daughter fell terribly ill with a kidney disorder. Even as the doctors treated her, her condition worsened, and it was soon discovered that she had an intestinal tumor. Wendy knew she had to withdraw from university and give all of her attention to caring for her little girl.
It wasn’t long before the expenses for medicine were overwhelming, and Wendy knew she needed to help with the family income. A neighbor told her about Grupo Comunal Argentina and the loans that she could receive from FINCA. Her neighbors rallied around her, and she was quickly accepted as a new member of the group and received her first loan. Wendy invested the money she received in shoes to sell in the market, and it didn’t take long before she was able to add to her husband’s income, and help pay for the food, medicines and transportation that their daughter needed.
Wendy says she is grateful to FINCA and to the women of Grupo Comunal Argentina who have accepted her so easily into their group. She continues to work hard every day to do everything she can to help her daughter’s recovery.
