Maria's story

María is from the city of Paraguarí and is studying Veterinary in one of the country’s best universities. She lives with her parents and her mother is a retired teacher; her father is a retired driver. She hopes in time to graduate with the education she’s getting and to open her own veterinary clinic in her city and to be of much use to her community. She’s grateful for this opportunity for progress she’s getting because it allows her to continue studying. She’s asking for this loan to pay transportation costs because with it she’ll be able to continue improving and growing.
