A loan helped to cover higher education costs.

Lady Mercedes's story

Mercedes is a student pursuing a Bachelor's degree in International Business. She is requesting a loan to cover her education costs. This is her story: My name is Mercedes. I live with my siblings, my mother and my grandmother. I was born into a very humble family with few resources but that never stopped me from continuing my education.

I want to study for a Bachelor's in International Business because I am passionate about it and it will help me to develop my skills.

I need this loan because my parents do not have the resources necessary to cover my tuition costs. If I receive this loan, I will have the opportunity to fulfill my dream and it will open the door to a better future for me.

My goals are to pass my courses, finish school, help my family and succeed both professionally and personally.
