Milva Maricela's story

Milva Maricela has a degree in dentistry and says she is always looking for ways to enhance her training and grow as a professional. She is the mother of a three-year-old son and strives to set an example in his upbringing.

She is specializing in orthodontics and implants and, since it is a very expensive specialization, is applying for a loan to pay for her course.

She is grateful for the opportunity to continue studying and specializing.
