Angie Viviana
Angie is 19 years old. She chose to study nursing because she thinks it is one of the most valuable professions. It consists of helping people and learning how to care for oneself and for others. It also develops strength, integrity, respect and responsibility. It contributes to form a decisive personality and to put one's integrity and people's health before other considerations. A nursing career also allows one to gain knowledge which the lender will use in the future to develop her profession with pride and responsibility.
Nursing is a way for her to grow as a person and to get ahead in life with a profession that helps her as well as the rest of people. It also brings added value to the society by providing immediate and opportune help for the community.
Angie has made a lot of efforts to study but they are still not enough. The jobs she has held are temporary, for hours, months or days. She has worked as a babysitter, among other things. Her mum helps her whenever she can but she has to take care of the household chores. She also helps Angie with a little money when she can. Angie and her mother live alone since Angie's father left two years ago and he provides very little help. He is living elsewhere with Angie's grandparents and has to help them.
Angie hopes to finish her studies without obstacles. While she continues to study she will do the internship and finally, with a little more experience, she hopes to find a job where she can continue to learn and that allows her to finish her nursing studies and keep learning.
Angie also wants to help her mother with the household expenses, with the tranquility that her own expenses will not be high. She hopes to save enough money for the semester, because sometimes she struggles to save for the full fee due to additional expenses and, like she mentioned, she has only found short-term jobs, often with low pays. This is why Kiva's loan would be very helpful for her and for many other students that want to finish their studies, work and forward their careers. She hopes to get the loan for the above mentioned reasons.

Su nombre es Angie, tiene 19 años , escogio enfermería porque le parece que es una de las profesiones más valiosas ya que consiste en ayudar a las personas y de aprender del cuidado de sí mismo y de los demás , de desarrollar fortaleza , integridad , respeto y responsabilidad y de formar un carácter de decisión y de siempre poner tu integridad y la salud de las personas sobre todo , de obtener conocimientos de los cuales en un futuro los utilizara para realizar una labor la cual desempeñara con mucho orgullo y responsabilidad .
También es una forma de crecer como persona y de poder salir adelante con una profesión que ayuda a sí y a las demás personas y de brindarle unos aportes a la sociedad, de brindar una ayuda inmediata y oportuna a la comunidad.
Los esfuerzos que ha hecho para estudiar es bastante y a la vez poco ya que en los trabajos que ha conseguido no son permanentes puesto que han sido por horas, meses o días. Los que ha conseguido consisten en cuidar niños y en misceláneas, su mama cuando puede le ayuda ya que ella se hace cargo de las cosas del hogar y cuando ella puede le ayuda con un aporte mínimo. Solo viven ellas dos, ya que su papa se fue hace 2 años, la ayuda que él les brinda es mínima. Ya que él se encuentra viviendo en otro lugar con sus abuelos y les tiene que ayudar. Espera poder terminar sus estudios sin que ningún inconveniente se presente mientras culmina en enfermería después poder realizar las practicas y ya con un poco más de experiencia poder conseguir un trabajo el cual le ayude a aprender más y le de la facilidad de estudiar y la oportunidad de poder seguir con la carrera y aprender mas
También para ayudar a su mama con los gastos del hogar y que haya la facilidad y la seguridad de que sus gastos no serán muchos y de tener la oportunidad de ahorrar lo del semestre ya que con en algunos casos le queda muy difícil reunir la totalidad de la cuota ya que hay más gastos y como lo ha dicho antes los trabajos que ha conseguido son de un tiempo muy corto y de un sueldo a veces muy poco , por eso el convenio con KIVA sería una gran ayuda para sí y muchos estudiantes más que quieren culminar su carrera , trabajar y seguir con ella , espero poder conseguir el convenio por los motivos ya mencionados .

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.
