Heyris Yassiel
Heyris Yassiel is a medical student who is requesting a loan to pay for her education-related expenses. This is her story:

"My name is Heyris Yassiel, I am 18 years old and live in Los Trinitarios II, Santo Domingo Este. I am the oldest of three siblings, and we all currently live with our parents. Only my mother is currently earning income. I went to a free public high school.

"I want to study Medicine at the Universidad UTESA, but the little income my family earns will not allow me to be what I've always wanted to be since I was young: a doctor. This is why I need to request financial aid that will help me achieve my dream of being a doctor.

"Without this loan, it would be impossible for me to study and get ahead as a person. This will change my life in a marvelous way, because it will help me study what I like, become a doctor in the future and meet my academic goals, which are to get good grades. My family would be very proud of me.

"I want you to help me get my degree because in the future I want to save lives and help improve the health of those in my society."

Heyris Yassiel es una estudiante de Medicina, ella solicita un préstamos para poder cubrir sus gastos educativos, esta es su historia:Mi nombre es Heyris Yassiel, tengo 18 años de edad y Vivo en Los Trinitarios II, Santo Domingo Este. Soy la más grande de tres hermanos que actualmente vivimos bajo la tutoría de mis padres, de los cuales mi madre es la única que actualmente percibe ingresos. Estudié el bachillerato en el liceo público (Gratuito)
Quiero estudiar Medicina en la Universidad UTESA, pero el poco dinero que percibe mi hogar para una familia de 5 miembros no me permite ser lo que siempre he querido desde pequeña que es ser médico y por eso me he visto en la necesidad de solicitar una ayuda financiera que me pueda ayudar a cumplir mi sueño de ser doctora.
Sin este préstamo se me haría imposible estudiar y echar para adelante como persona, por ende este me cambiaria mi vida de una forma maravillosa porque me ayudaría a estudiar lo que me gusta, poder llegar a ser una Doctora en el mañana y a cumplir mis metas académicas que son poder sacar buenas calificaciones, mi familia se sentiría muy orgullosas de mí.
Quiero que me ayuden hacer esta carrera porque quiero en un futuro poder salvar vidas y ayudar a darle una mejor salud a los de mi sociedad.
