Angie Jimena
This is the story of Angie, which she says is not much different from that of others. Her family is composed of six people. Her mother takes care of everyone and helps with everything they need and educates them so that they can become good people. Her dad works fighting to make sure they never want for anything. Her three younger brothers make her laugh and cry.

Angie finished high school in 2012. Five years ago they arrived in this city in search of new opportunities. It was very difficult because they had to leave behind many friends. It was here that she found out that in CampoAlto she could realize her dreams of becoming a nurse aid. It is her dream because she likes to help people that need it most. She also wants to be an example for many little girls so that her parents feel proud of her since she is their only daughter. Her plan is that later, after finishing her studies in CampoAlto, she can continue studying and be hired by a good hospital. This would give her resources that she wants to use to support her younger brothers so that they can also study.

This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.

About CampoAlto

CampoAlto is a for-profit education institute that offers a variety of classes to students from socially or economically marginalized groups, including women, ethnic minorities, displaced populations, disabled individuals, and those living below the poverty line. Kiva funding is being used to pay tuition for students who couldn’t otherwise afford to attend classes.

Because CampoAlto’s core business is not purely microfinance, there is some level of additional risk for lenders. For this reason, Kiva has not assigned the institute a risk rating.
