Keyla is a young Industrial Psychology student. She is requesting an education loan to be able to cover the costs of her registration fees, books, and transportation.

My name is Keyla. I am 20 years old and I live in Santo Domingo Este in the Dominican Republic. I am single and I do not have children. Right now I work in an education center as a secretary. I live with my mother and two of my siblings; I'm the youngest.

I want to study Industrial Psychology because I like it and it's a good fit for me. I have goals outlined, like becoming a professional, securing a better quality of life, having my own home, helping my parents to have a peaceful old age, and making sure that my future children have a better quality of life than the one that I have had, among others. Unfortunately, I do not have sufficient resources. Where I work, the pay is really low and it's not enough for my expenses. I don't have any financial support from my parents due to their own financial situation. My mother works as a nanny for a family and my father isn't working right now.

I need to participate in this amazing Kiva program because without it, it would be really hard for me to study or I would have to wait until I was in a better financial situation. I want to start studying as soon as possible because it has already been three years since I graduated from high school and I haven't been able to get started due to a lack of resources.

Keyla es una joven estudiante de Psicología Industrial, ella está solicitando un préstamo de estudio para poder cubrir sus gastos de matricula, libro y transporte. Esta es su historia:

Mi nombre es Keyla, tengo 20 años y vivo en Santo Domingo Este. República Dominicana. Soy soltera y no tengo hijos. Actualmente trabajo en un centro educativo como secretaria, vivo con mi madre y dos de mis hermanos, soy la menor.
Quiero estudiar Psicología Industrial porque me gusta y tengo perfil para ello, además quiero superarme como persona. Tengo metas trazadas, tales como hacerme profesional, obtener una mejor calidad de vida, mi casa propia, ayudar a mis padres a una vejez tranquila, que mis futuros hijos puedan tener una mejor vida que la que he tenido, entre otras. Lamentablemente no cuento con los recursos suficientes, ya que donde laboro mi ingreso es son muy bajos y no es suficiente para mis gastos. No tengo apoyo económico de mis padres por sus condiciones económicas, mi madre labora como niñera en una casa de familia y mi padre actualmente no labora. Necesito participar de este hermoso proyecto KIVA, ya que sin él me resultaría muy difícil estudiar, o tendría que esperar hasta conseguir una mejoría económica. Quiero empezar mis estudios cuanto antes, ya que tengo 3 años que terminé el bachiller y no he podido avanzar nada por falta de recursos.
