Santa is a young medical student. She is requesting a loan in order to be able to cover all of her educational expenses. Here is her story.

My name is Santa, and I live in Sabana Iglesia, a municipality in Santiago. I am 25 years old, and I live with my husband, who is not now working. I do not have the needed resources to be able to cover my medical studies. I only have six terms left to be able to achieve my dream of being a doctor and to help those that are ill. This is what I long for, and I want to develop myself professionally in the area of medicine.

Ever since I was a very little girl I knew that this was the career that would motivate me to study and to get ahead. In the town where I live there are a lot of people with few resources. Each time I see this hospital full of sick people with so many limitations, it motivates me more to keep studying. Now that I know about Kiva, I wish to be deserving of this help in order to finally fulfill my dream.

Santa es una joven estudiante de Medicina la cual está solicitando un préstamo para poder cubrir todos los gastos de sus estudios, esta es su historia:
Mi nombre es Santa, vivo en Sabana Iglesia un municipio de Santiago, tengo 25 años de edad, vivo con mi esposo el cual ahora no está trabajando. No cuento con los recursos necesarios para poder cubrir mis estudios de medicina, solo me restan 6 cuatrimestres para poder logar mi sueño de ser médico y poder ayudar a los enfermos como es lo que anhelo y desarrollarme profesionalmente en el área de la medicina. Desde muy niña siempre supe que esta carrera era la que me motivaría a estudiar y salir adelante, en el pueblo donde vivo hay muchas personas de pocos recursos y cada vez que veo ese hospital lleno de personas enfermas con tantas limitaciones esto me motiva más a seguir estudiando y ahora que conozco a KIVA deseo ser merecedora de esta ayuda para por fin cumplir mi sueño.
