Here is his story: My name is Charles, and I’m 38 years old. I was born in the city of Azua in the municipality of Padre de las Casas, in the southern part of the Dominican Republic, and currently l live in El Seíbo, which is in the East. I am married and I have 5 children—2 boys and 3 girls. I’m the oldest of 4 brothers, and my parents worked very hard to give me the best education that they were able. My father is a farmer and my mother is a nurse.
I began my studies at O&M University with a degree in Mathematics—I realize that I have had numerical abilities since I was young—but I am unable to pay for them. It has been difficult for me to make the monthly payments, and at this time I cannot continue paying for my program, as I do not have sufficient resources; and without approval for this loan it will be impossible for me to complete my degree. If it is approved, it would be very important for me, as it would change my life and that of my family, and I would be able to give my children a better quality of life.
I dream of being a mathematics professor in my city, in order to leave a legacy to my children and to my students. Then, I will continue preparing myself in order to keep improving the methodology for the teaching of mathematics in the classroom, so that students will look at math as a game instead of a problem.
Inicie mis estudios en la universidad O&M, una licenciatura en Matemáticas, desde niño me di cuenta que poseo habilidades con los números, pero no puedo costearlos me ha sido difícil pagar las mensualidades; en estos momentos no puedo seguir pagando mi carrera ya que no poseo recursos suficientes y sin una aprobación de este préstamo sería imposible finalizarlo, en caso de ser aprobado, sería muy significativo para mí ya que cambiaría mi vida y la de mi familia y podría darles una mejor calidad de vida a mis hijos.
Sueño con ser profesor de matemáticas en mi ciudad, para dejar un legado a mis hijos y estudiantes, después me seguiré preparando para seguir mejorando la metodología de enseñanza de las matemáticas en las aulas, que los estudiantes vean las matemáticas como un juego y no como un problema.
