This is Kelvin's story:
"My name is Kelvin and I am 21 years old. I currently live in the city of Santo Domingo, in the house of a friend of the family. I was born in the Barahona province in the south of the Dominican Republic. I left my home province in the hope of achieving my lifelong dream of becoming a doctor. My family is not very big - I have only one brother.
"I am currently in second semester, studying medicine at the Universidad Tecnológica de Santiago (UTESA). I need this loan from FUNDAPEC and Kiva because it would be a great help for me to continue my studies.
"Receiving this loan would be amazing! This would be the biggest opportunity I have had in my life. I would have no obstacles to overcome to pay university fees and so I could continue studying the degree that I like so much. Then, in the future, I can become what I have always wanted to be - a paediatrics doctor, as I love children.
"After finishing my degree, my objective is to do my best every day - with everything I learn in my studies I want to do the best for everyone I have to treat. I will work with patience, dedication and, above all, with lots of love, so that I can relieve the pain of those who come to me in order to get better."
Actualmente me encuentro cursando el 2do cuatrimestre de Medicina en la Universidad Tecnológica de Santiago (UTESA). Necesito el préstamo de FUNDAPEC Kiva, porque esta sería una gran ayuda para continuar mis estudios.
De recibir el préstamo Wao! Esta sería la oportunidad más grande en mi vida, ya que no tendré obstáculos para pagar la universidad y así pudiera continuar estudiando la carrera que tanto me gusta, y en un futuro ser lo que siempre he anhelado, Dr. en medicina en el área de Pediatría, ya que me encantan los niños.
Luego de terminar mi carrera, mi objetivo principal es dar lo mejor de mi día a día, de todo lo que aprendí en mi trayecto de enseñanza a cada ser humano que me toque examinar, haciéndolo con paciencia, entrega, dedicación y sobre todo muchísimo amor, para aliviar el dolor de quienes acudan a mí a buscar su mejoría.
