Livio Raul's story
Livio Raul is a young civil engineering student. He is requesting a loan so that he can pay for his studies, and this is his story: "My name is Livio Raúl. I'm 19 years old and I am from Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. I have two siblings - my 20-year-old older sister, and a little 8-year-old brother. I live with my mother in my grandparent's and mother's home. I started the first trimester of my civil engineering degree at INTEC. I want to take this degree because I like it a lot and also because I think it's one of the most important degrees. In the future, I want to be able to help my family and people who really need it, but given the economic situation my mother's earnings have diminished. If I don't get some help to be able to pay for university, I will need to withdraw. What I need and desire is that someone is able to offer me a friendly hand, and that I can achieve my dream of finishing my degree without withdrawing. After I finish my degree, I will continue to specialize. In this way I will help my community with its needs, designing work methods and teaching my industry peers that, with effort, we can meet our goals. If I do not get this loan, I will be forced to achieve my goal and finish my studies off-schedule. In this country, by studying, we can keep advancing and modernizing up to the level of developed countries. Thank you very much."
