Altynai's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to pay for her higher education.
Altynai is a freshman in AUCA's Anthropology Department and this is her story: “I lost my father and it was difficult to get over it. We rent a house with my mom and two brothers. My mother is a school-teacher and my two siblings are school-children. Given the circumstances, I tried to help my mother in any way: volunteered, wrote projects, and was involved in different social events at school in order to be a happy and a good daughter. I was even able to save 500 USD working as a waitress and PR assistant in the summer; however it’s a small sum to cover my tuition at AUCA. AUCA is well known for its prominent alumni, who are in demand not only in Kyrgyzstan, but in the World. I was impressed by the values this university preserves compared to others and also the reputation it has as a corruption-free university with highly developed student body. I did the first step and it was successful, hope dies last.”
