My name is Nesthor. I am 21 years old and I now live in La Vega, Dominican Republic. I am single, without children, and I have two siblings. My parents are of scarce resources, and they work at domestic duties.
I am a medical student at UCATESI. I decided to study for this career because I love it and because I want to help other people of scarce resources to have better medical attention. The subjects that I am most passionate about are anatomy, physiology, and histology.
I decided to turn to a loan from Kiva-FUNDAPEC since I don't have the necessary resources to be able to cover the expenses, and my parents can't bear the costs. If I don't obtain this loan, I will not be able to continue studying, since I don't have a job, and what my parents earn barely gives us enough to survive.
My goal is to train as a doctor, taking maximum advantage of the learning process and then being able to choose to do my master's degree and be able to serve my community.
Soy estudiante de medicina en la UCATESI, decidí estudiar esta carrera porque me apasiona y porque quiero ayudar a otras personas de escasos recursos a tener mejores atenciones médicas, las materias que más me apasionan son: Anatomía, Fisiología e Histología.
Decidí recurrir al préstamo de KIVA-FUNDAPEC ya que no tengo recursos necesarios para poder cubrir los gastos y mis padres no pueden costeármelos, de no obtener este préstamo no podría seguir estudiando ya que no tengo un trabajo y con lo que ganan mis padres a penas nos da para sobrevivir.
Mi meta es formarme como médico aprovechando al máximo el proceso de aprendizaje y luego poder optar por hacer mi maestría y poder servirle a mi comunidad.
