2.3 million people in Mexico suffer from cataracts, making untreated cataracts the number one cause of blindness in the country. With an aging population and a high incidence of diabetes, that number is only expected to rise. Sala Uno has replicated and adapted best practices of the Aravind Eye Care model in India, providing affordable exams and surgeries to low-income populations in Mexico. The all-inclusive business model including tiered pricing optimizes resources to ensure widespread access to low cost, high quality patient care. The loan is in partnership with Global Partnerships.
