Maryluz is 33 years old. She is a married woman with two beautiful daughters. She is an enterprising, honest, responsible, humble woman who has had a dream for many years. It is a long term life project that she hasn't been able to do due to many circumstances but the time has come to make it a reality, since her daughters are big and she can start working in a plastics company. She wants to study Assistant Nursing. For her this is the utmost, and this way she can help people who need it so much, taking care of them during their difficult times, giving them medication, helping them move from one place to another, feeding them, coddling them, and making any pain they may have feel lighter. She wants to do practical studies in other areas such as intensive care and emergency, especially in deliveries. These are some of the areas that she is the most interested in. Since she is a mother she realizes how beautiful it is to see an innocent baby be born every minute. She wants to be a part of the Assistant Nursing family and thus be able to have a more stable job where she earns a little more and be abel to offer her family a better future. Thanks to the opportunity that the Kiva agreement can give her, she hopes to attain her dream that she has wanted to make come true so much.

Es un proyecto de vida a largo plazo que no ha podido realizar por muchas circunstancias pero le ha llegado el momento de hacerlo realidad, ya que sus hijas ya están grandes y puede empezar a trabajar en una empresa de plásticos.

Hacer practicas en otras áreas como cuidados intensivos, urgencias, sobretodo en partos son algunas de las áreas que mas le interesan.

More information about this loan

This loan will help a CampoAlto student pay a semester's tuition. With seven branches throughout Bogota, Colombia, CampoAlto tailors educational programs for socially marginalized students. Each of these courses lasts three semesters on average and includes specialized training and internship placement to help students secure jobs after graduation.

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.
