Karen Dayan
This is Erika Dayan. She is someone who strives every day to improve herself academically and be a person of principles, values, ethics and morals, respectability and responsibility. Ever since she was a child, Erika has always dreamed of becoming a health professional, however this has been impossible because since she was very young Erika has had to work and study, as there was no one else to pay for her tuition. Everything she has now is a result of what she has been able to achieve by herself.

Specialising in the Dental Health Assistant course will be very useful for Erika and complement her knowledge in the health field, which will provide her with better training as well as work opportunities.

Erika is grateful to Kiva for their interest in subsidising specialist courses offered by the Campo Alto Institute. This provides opportunities to many people like Erika who don’t have a way of paying for a professional course.

Ella se llama erika dayan, es una persona que día a día lucha por preparase académica mente para ser mejor persona con principios, valores, ética y moral, respeto y responsabilidad. Desde la infancia siempre soñó con ser una persona profesional en el área de la salud, pero ha sido imposible pues desde muy niña le ha tocado trabajar y estudiar, ya que ella no tuvo quien le pagara el estudio. Todo lo que hasta el momento ha logrado realizar ha sido por ella misma.

Agrádese a kiva que está interesado en subsidiar las carreras técnicas que ofrece el INSTITUTO CAMPO ALTO, pues es una oportunidad que le brindan a muchas personas como Erika, que no tienen los medios para pagar una carrera profesional.

More information about this loan

This loan will help a CampoAlto student pay a semester's tuition. With seven branches throughout Bogota, Colombia, CampoAlto tailors educational programs for socially marginalized students. Each of these courses lasts three semesters on average and includes specialized training and internship placement to help students secure jobs after graduation.

This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.

About CampoAlto

CampoAlto is a for-profit education institute that offers a variety of classes to students from socially or economically marginalized groups, including women, ethnic minorities, displaced populations, disabled individuals, and those living below the poverty line. Kiva funding is being used to pay tuition for students who couldn’t otherwise afford to attend classes.

Because CampoAlto’s core business is not purely microfinance, there is some level of additional risk for lenders. For this reason, Kiva has not assigned the institute a risk rating.
