Jaime Eduardo is a young student of Industrial Engineering. He is requesting a loan in order to cover his education expenses. This is his story:

My name is Jaime, I am 21 years old and currently I am living in Villa Duarte, Santo Domingo. I have two brothers and a sister. I am single and do not have any children. My father passed away recently and my mother is a civil service employee. Currently I study industrial engineering at Universidad Nacional Pedro Henriquez Ureña (UNPHU). I have taken various classes in this field and my favorites are Food Technology, Industrial Psychology, Operation Investigation and Industrial Drawing. The need of requesting a loan is tied to who was funding my studies, which was my father. He unfortunately passed away 2 months ago and if I don't receives this loan, I will not be able to achieve the dream that my father was most hoping for, which was to be able to see me graduate. Not being having this great helping hand would significantly affect my standard of living. But if I were to obtain this help, my life would completely change as I would be able to fulfill my goals and the dream of my father. After graduating, I would like to get a masters degree and be able to work in my field in order to improve business services, security and logistics
