Vianka Vanesa's story
Vianka is studying to become a teacher and asks for a loan to pay for university fees. She is 26 and lives in Luperón, Puerto Plata, where she was also born and raised. She has two older brothers. She lives with her parents, people of very little means: her mother is a housewife and her father is a farmer and raises cattle. She is studying to become a teacher and goes to UAPA Univerisity, an open university for adults. She chose this path because she is passionate about teaching, especially small children. Social sciences are among her favourite subjects. She is in a dire financial situation, because she cannot work and attend university at the same time, and thus needs the loan. She lives in the country and makes the trek to the city every day to go to university. Without this loan, she would not be able to continue attending, which would be a shame because her career is her priority at this point in her life. Her goal is to graduate and become a teacher in order to support her family.
