Cynthia Carol's story

Cynthia is a young woman who lives with her mother and her 11-year-old brother. Her mother works as a street vendor, selling jello during the summer, and tejas (filled chocolate sweet) and chocolates during winter. She is studying the career of Environmental Technologies in SENATI. She decided on this career because since childhood, her service vocation was always inclined towards the care of the environment. The obstacles she has are financial. The lack of money has been one of the problems she has faced to finish her first semester. Due to her mother's low income, she is requesting this loan to KIVA to complete her studies. The biggest dream of her life is to complete her goal, which is to validate the courses at a university to become an Environmental Engineer. She wants to continue gaining knowledge, and aspires to become her country's Minister of Environment. Cynthia dedicates these words: "I am infinitely grateful for your support, you make it possible for poor people like me to move forward, support our families, and improve ourselves as people. I promise I will not disappoint you. My fears of not being able to continue my studies are no longer in my mind. I know there is support from people like you and I know I will achieve my goals and dreams thanks to you and your big hearts".
