Jose's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to cover expenses to defend his thesis and other degree costs.

Jose's story

Jose continues to study for his veterinary degree and at the end of his studies he wants to specialize in order to grow as a professional. His family inspire him to achieve his goals and it is for them that he works hard in order to become someone in life.

He dreams of one day being able to have his own animal production and being able to apply everything he learned by studying.

He asks for this new loan to pay to defend his thesis and pay his degree expenses and thus be able to continue his studies.
