Crisley
Crisley is a young medical school student, who is requesting an education loan to pay her school's tuition. This is her story:

My name is Crisley and I am a young medical student in Santo Domingo. Three years ago it seemed like a distant dream to study one day due to the circumstances that changed my life and that of my family. I was diagnosed in 2009 with a chronic disease. I was admitted to the hospital several times and I was hospitalized for more than six months followed by surgery. Despite a few limitations, my condition has not stopped me completely. I attend university, I am part of a dance group, I volunteer with the Red Cross, and whenever I can I provide moral support for other people like me.

I am very clear on my purpose in life and the goals I want to achieve. This includes becoming a great doctor of gastroenterology. I truly believe that everything in life happens for a reason and maybe this was all just the push I needed to know that my place is where I can serve, help, and turn my experiences into something positive in the life of another that has health problems similar to mine.

I live with my parents and brother who is in secondary school. The entire process I just explained was excessively costly for my family. I still need things, medicines, and medical visits due to my condition. My family's financial situation can no longer support my university expenses. That is why I am requesting help in whatever manner possible to find a way to pay for my studies. Successfully completing my degree and graduating with honors is another dream I hope to achieve with the help of God. While there is still life in me I will continue striving to reach it.

Crisley es una joven estudiante universitaria de medicina, quien esta solicitando un préstamo educativo para poder pagar la matricula de sus estudios. Esta es su historia:

Mi nombre es Crisley y soy una joven mujer estudiante de medicina en Santo Domingo. Unos 3 años atrás verme estudiando parecía un lejano sueño, debido a una circunstancia que cambió mi vida y la de mi familia. Fui diagnosticada en el 2009 con una enfermedad cronica. Tenía múltiples internamientos y pasé un poco más de 6 meses hospitalizada interrumpidamente, y al final tenía una cirugía. A pesar de unas pocas limitaciones, mi condición no me ha paralizado en absoluto. Voy a la universidad, pertenezco al grupo de danza, soy voluntaria en la cruz roja y cada que puedo brindo mi apoyo moral a otras personas como yo.

Tengo muy claro mi propósito en la vida y las metas que deseo alcanzar. Esto incluye convertirme en una gran doctora. Creo fielmente en que todo en la vida pasa por una razón, y quizás esto fue solo el empuje que necesitaba para saber que mi lugar está donde pueda servir, ayudar y hacer de mi experiencia algo positivo en la vida de alguien más que tiene problemas de salud similares a los míos.

Vivo con mis padres y un hermano que estudia en la escuela secundaria. Todo el proceso que he narrado implicó un gasto excesivo para mi familia. Todavía necesito materiales, medicinas, y chequeos médicos para mi condición. La condición financiera de la familia ya no soporta los gastos de mi educación universitaria. Es por ello que apelo de su ayuda en la manera de lo posible para encontrar una forma de costear mis estudios. Terminar mi carrera exitosamente y graduarme con honores es un sueño más que deseo ver cumplido, con la ayuda de Dios y mientras haya vida en mí seguiré luchando hasta verlo alcanzado.
