Blasina
Blasina is a young woman who studies dentistry. She is requesting a loan to pay for her studies. This is her story:

My name is Blasina; I was born and raised in the municipality of Hato Viejo, Yamasa, Monte Plata, located in Northeastern Dominican Republic. I am 20 years old. I am a student with limited resources, and due to my family’s economic condition, it is difficult for me to pay for my studies. My parents do not make enough and I am unemployed. I have a large family: eight siblings supported by my father, who is a public-transport driver and makes barely enough to feed a family of eleven.

My dream is to become a professional. My community lacks people that are willing to help Hato Viejo to progress. I would like to give a small contribution to these people who have many needs, such as my family. I am currently working as a volunteer in a literacy program in my community, called “Quisqueya aprende contigo” [Quisqueya learns with you], which fills my heart with satisfaction.

I am studying dentistry in UPHEC, a university with well-prepared teachers. However, I need RD$251,000 [DOP] in order to pay for the tuition fee and I do not have them.

This loan is important for me, in order to make my dream come true and contribute to my community. Without it, it would be impossible for me to continue with my studies, which can open doors that would otherwise be closed for me and my family. They need my support and I hope to have one or several helping hands that believe in me and in my dream of becoming a dentist. When I become a professional, I will be able to support others as well.

Blasina es una joven estudiante de Odontología, ella está solicitando un prestamo para poder pagar sus estudios. Esta es su historia:
Mi nombre es Blasina, soy nativa y resido en municipio de Hato Viejo, Yamasa, Monte Plata en el Noreste de la Republica Dominicana, tengo 20 años de edad, soy una estudiante de escasos recursos y debido a la condición de mi familia, me es muy difícil costearme los estudios ya que los recursos económicos de mis padres son muy limitados y yo no cuento con un empleo. Tengo una familia numerosa; de 8 hermanos y los ingresos de mi padre que es chofer de carro público; apenas nos alcanza para comer cada día porque somos once en total.
Tengo mis sueños de tener una carrera, en mi comunidad hace falta gente con voluntad para poder echar para adelante a Hato Viejo, mi deseo es poder llevar un granito de arena a esta gente que tanto lo necesita al igual que a mi familia. Actualmente soy voluntaria en un programa de alfabetización para mi comunidad que se llama “Quisqueya Aprende contigo” lo cual me llena de satisfacción.
Actualmente estudio odontología en UPHEC, universidad en la cual sus maestros son muy capacitados, pero para poder hacerlo necesito RD$251,000 que me permitirá cubrir la matrícula de la carrera, pero tengo la limitante de que no puedo costearme los costos de la misma.
Este préstamo es necesario para mí, para poder lograr mi sueño y contribuir con mi comunidad, sin la ayuda de este préstamo me sería imposible seguir cursando mi carrera, ya que me abriría las puertas que en este momento están cerradas para mí y para mi familia que necesita de mi apoyo por lo que espero poder contar con una mano generosa o varias que apuesten a mí para poder cumplir mi gran sueño de ser odontóloga y después yo pueda seguir apoyando a otros cuando logre ser profesional.
