Carlos Jose's story
Carlos Jose is a medical student. He is requesting a loan to be able to cover his educational expenses. This is his story: My name is Carlos Jose. I am from San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic. I am 25 years old, and I live with my mother and siblings. My mother is a homemaker, and my siblings work independently. I want to continue studying medicine at the Universidad Central del Este (UCE) de San Pedro de Macorís because it is the closest university. Although it is a little more expensive, I don’t have the help to transfer to another university. My family doesn’t have the resources necessary to be able to afford my education since there are many expenses that come up, such as: registration, transportation, purchasing materials, copies, etc. I am requesting the help of a Kiva loan to be able to cover these expenses. Otherwise, I will not be able to continue going to school, and I will have to stop attending the university in order to work to get some help. If the loan is approved for me, I am going to work very hard to graduate with good grades to get a good job where I can demonstrate my skills and be able to rise up to contribute in my community and pay my family back for everything they have done and help them to have a better quality of life.
