Angie Lorena
This is Angie Lorena. She is passionate about nursing because she believes it is the art of caring for people in their physical circumstances and also in other circumstances, such as those the patients live with day to day. This profession, in her opinion, tries to unify a bond not only in the sense of nurse-patient, but also in the sense of two people who put themselves in the other’s shoes, forming a friendship that, in the end, benefits both. The nurse tries to understand the patient, to guide and help him or her, to care for him/her, to bathe him/her. But the most important of all is to talk with him/her and with the family members, helping them to understand the situation in which they find themselves and how to work through it. The nurse isn’t just someone who comes and goes, doing what she is told; she is a friend, she is one who cares.

From the time she was very young, she had an interest in the profession of nursing, imagining when and how it would be the first time she interacted with a patient. She has always felt a liking and passion for working as a health professional. She wants to help patients during their recuperation.

Now, at 18 years old, she understands what an important role nursing plays in life. So soon after beginning the practice [portion of her program], she feels excitement and also the happiness of achieving and finishing quickly some of her goals so she can begin to change the vision of nursing held by many members of this profession.

At this time she is requesting a loan from Kiva because she doesn’t have sufficient economic resources to pay her tuition at the normal price. She has other expenses and what she most needs is to stretch her money a bit. She would be very grateful if she were to be granted this loan and the support you can give her.

Ella es Angie Lorena, le apasiona la enfermería porque considera que es el arte de cuidar a través de circunstancias tanto físicas como de otro tipo con las que conviven los pacientes en el día a día. Esta profesión para el concepto de ella, pretende unificar un lazo no solo de enfermera-paciente sino de dos personas que se ponen el uno en el lugar del otro conformando una amistad que al final beneficiara a ambos, la enfermera trata de entender al paciente, de guiarlo y ayudarlo, de cuidarlo, bañarlo, pero más que todo de dialogar con él y con los familiares, haciéndoles entender la situación en la que se encuentran y que hay que hacer para salir de ella, la enfermera no es solo alguien que viene y va haciendo lo que le mandan, es una amiga, es quien cuida.
Desde muy pequeña sintió un gusto por la profesión de enfermería, imaginando cuando y como sería el momento en que interactuara con un paciente, en el pensamiento siempre ha sentido el gusto y la pasión por ejercer como profesional de la salud, quiere ayudar a los pacientes a la recuperación.
Ahora con 18 años de edad, se da cuenta del papel tan importante que realiza la enfermería en la vida, a poco tiempo de iniciar las prácticas, la emoción la invade y junto a ello la felicidad de lograr y culminar prontamente algunas de las metas para comenzar a generar un cambio en cuanto a la visión de enfermería en muchas personas que hacen parte de esta profesión.
En este momento ella solicita del convenio con kiva ya que no cuenta con los recursos económicos suficientes para poder pagar el valor de las cuotas en el precio normal, ya que ella tiene otros gastos y lo que más necesita es economizar un poco de dinero, ella estaría muy agradecida si logra ser favorecida con este convenio y la ayuda que le pueden dar.
