Vanesa
Vanesa, 17, is a young woman who will be getting a Bachelor’s in Education. She’s requesting a loan to be able to pay for sustenance, transportation and textbooks. This is her story:

My name is Vanesa. I was born in the city of Santo Domingo. I’m 17-years-old. My father died when I was 13 and my mother was left alone; she has sacrificed to support me. My mother works as a secretary and her salary is barely enough to pay for fixed costs and food. I want to reach my dream of becoming a professional educator but she’s unable to pay for my schooling because her salary is insufficient.

With the benefit of this loan, I’ll be able to pay for texts, supplies and transportation because my mother’s unable to pay for them and to reach my dream of working teaching and helping children with learning problems and also to contribute to my country by helping people who never went to school to learn to read and write.

This loan represents my hope of being able to reach my dream of becoming a professional to help my mother this way somehow repaying her for all the effort she’s made to move me ahead after my father’s death.

I hope to find a friendly hand to help me attain this dream.

Farewell,
Vanesa

Vanesa es una joven de 17 años que va a estudiar Lic. en Educación, ella está solicitando un préstamo para poder cubrir sus gastos de sostenimiento, transporte y libros. Esta es su historia:
Mi nombre es Vanesa, nací en la ciudad de Santo Domingo, tengo 17 años, a la edad de 13 años mi padre murió y mi madre quedo sola y es quien me ha sostenido con sacrificio, mi madre trabaja como secretaria, su salario a penas nos alcanza para los gastos fijos y alimentarnos, quiero lograr mi sueño de ser profesional en Educación y ella no me puede pagar los estudios ya que no es suficiente con su salario.

Con el beneficio de este préstamo podré costear los libros, materiales y transporte, ya que mi madre no lo puede pagar, y realizar el sueño de trabajar enseñando y ayudando a niños con problemas de aprendizaje y también ayudando personas a leer y escribir que nunca fueron a una escuela, como un aporte al desarrollo de mi país.

Este préstamo representa mi esperanza de poder lograr mi sueño de ser profesional y de esta manera ayudar a mi madre y devolverle de cierta forma el esfuerzo que ella ha hecho por sacarme adelante a raíz de la muerte de mi padre.

Espero poder contar con una mano amiga para lograr este sueño.

Se despide


Vanesa.
