Evelin Johanna
Evelin Johanna is in medical school. She requests a loan so that she will be able to finish her education. This is her story:

My name is Evelin Johanna. I am 23 years old, married, and I live with my husband in San Pedro de Macorí. I come from a very humble family with 5 children, and my family worked very hard to move us forward. My husband was not able to finish his education because he had to begin to work and, with his income, we could not afford for him to finance his education.

I decided to study medicine in the Universidad Central del Este because it has always interested me and it is my dream. I would like to help the needy and make my contribution to society. My family has high hopes for me because they have seen my desire to overcome and, despite great difficulties, I have continued forward.

The main reason why I am requesting this loan is because I have completed 8 quarters, or half of the course of study, and if I do not receive help, I will have to drop out of school. My goal is to study and become a great professional. I want to be a good person and a great doctor. It is important to me to finish my studies because it will be a great achievement and I will be able to have a career that I love.

Evelin Johanna es estudiante de medicina, ella solicita un préstamos para poder terminar sus estudios, esta es su historia:Mi nombre es Evelin Johanna, tengo 23 años de edad, soy casada y vivo solo con mi esposo en San Pedro de Macorís. Vengo de una familia muy humilde, somos 5 hermanos y mi familia a tratado de sacarnos adelante con mucho trabajo. Mi esposo no pudo terminar sus estudios por ello tuvo que empezar a trabajar y con sus ingresos no nos alcanza para costear la carrera.
Decidí estudiar medicina en la Universidad Central del Este porque siempre me ha fascinado esa carrera y es mi sueño. Me gustaría ayudar a los necesitados y aportar un granito de arena a la sociedad. Mi familia tiene gran esperanza en mi porque han visto el deseo de superación que tengo, que ha pesar de las dificultades que se me han presentado he seguido adelante.
La razón principal por la cual solicito el préstamo es porque ya tengo 8 cuatrimestres, es decir, la mitad de la carrera cursada y de no tener una ayuda tendré que dejar los estudios.
Mi meta es estudiar y llegar a ser una gran profesional, quiero poder ser una persona de bien y una gran doctora. Para mi es muy importante terminar mis estudios porque seria un gran logro en mi vida y poder ejercer la carrera que realmente me gusta.
