Perla Massiel
Perla Massiel is an 18-year-old medical student. She is applying for a loan so she can pay for her university studies. This is her story:

My name is Perla Massiel. I'm 18 and live in Licey -Santiago with my parents. I was born in Santiago, have two younger brothers, and am the oldest child.

My father works as a blacksmith and my mother works in a family internet center. I'm in the third semester of the medial program in Utesa- Santiago. I've dreamed of being a doctor since I was a a young girl. Playing with other children, I was always the doctor, and my enthusiasm for that role has remained an inspiration. It was my motivation to earn a bachelor's degree as a nurse technician in preparation for my medical studies.

I've also seen the needs of people who have died around me because they lack money to pay for medical care. When I graduate, I want to support my community and make a contribution to the larger region through my knowledge and experience. But I can only do this with the support of Kiva's loan program.
