Danilsa
Danilsa is a young woman pursuing a university degree in Business Administration. She is requesting this loan to help cover tuition costs for her degree. This is her story:

My name is Danilsa, and I am 18 years old. I was born and raised in Santo Domingo, and I currently live there with my parents and siblings. I am the third of five children in our family, and we all live in a small house in the Azul de los Ríos neighborhood.

From the time I was very young, I loved school and academic work. I always put forth my best effort in all my classes, and as a result I am now studying Business Administration at O&M University. I am in my third semester of the program, and my favorite course subjects thus far include: administration, accounting and financial mathematics. I chose this career specifically because I love all the practical applications of Business Administration: working with clients, business concepts, being on a team with coworkers and the responsibility that comes along with being a professional and an entrepreneur. I can't imagine myself in any other field, and I hope to leverage my education and professional skills to support my family and improve their quality of life.

My family is facing several financial challenges and strains at the moment, so a loan like this gives me the best chance to be able to stay in my university program. As a family of seven with five children, my mother works as a cook in a private home and my father works on contract with a decorations company. Both of them make minimum wage and are no longer able to help me with tuition costs. I sincerely thank you in advance for your support and generosity, and for the opportunity to pursue my degree and my life dreams.

Danilsa es una joven estudiante de Administración de empresa, ella esta solicitando un préstamo para poder pagar sus estudios, esta es su historia:Soy Danilsa, tengo 18 años de edad, nacida y criada en Santo Domingo, lugar donde resido actualmente bajo la tutoría de mis padres, soy la tercera de cinco hermanos; Vivo en una pequeña casa en el barrio azul de los Ríos.
Desde pequeña he sido muy entregada a mis estudios, dando lo mejor de mí para sacar las mejores calificaciones en cada curso, hoy ya estoy en la universidad O&M estudiando la carrera de Administración de Empresas, cursando el tercer cuatrimestre, las materias que me han fascinado y han hecho aun más emocionante mi trayectoria aquí en la universidad son: administración, contabilidad y matemática financiera.
El motivo por el cual les solicito este préstamo es por la mala situación económica que estamos viviendo en mi familia, como entenderán somos cinco hermanos, mi madre trabaja como cocinera en una casa y mi padre presta sus servicios a una compañía de decoraciones, ambos ganando un sueldo mínimo, esto hace que para ellos no les sea posible continuar apoyándome. Sí ustedes tomaran en cuenta mi caso y facilitaran este préstamo a quien suscribe yo podría realizar mis estudios sin ningún intermedio y darle otro giro a mi vida tanto de manera profesional como personal.
Decidí estudiar esta carrera porque me identifico en todo lo relacionado con ella; los clientes, los negocios, el trato con los empleados y la responsabilidad que conlleva ser un buen emprendedor, no me imagino realizando mi vida profesional en otro ámbito y la oportunidad de poder así tener mejores condiciones de vida.
