Alexandra's story

Alexandra is a young dentistry student. She is requesting a loan to be able to pay for her education costs. This is her story: My name is Alexandra, I am 23 and born and raised in Moca, in the province of Espaillat. I have 4 siblings and I am single. I study dentistry at the Technical Catholic University of Cibao in La Vega, Dominican Republic Among the courses I have taken there is: Biostatistics, Anatomy 1, Epidemiology, Oral Embryology, Introduction to Psychology, Oral Microbiology, Anatomy of the head and neck, Histology, Dental Anatomy, Periodontics 1, Dental courses, Bioethics, Dental Radiology, Diagnostics and Pathology 1. The ones that I have liked the most are Anatomy 1, Oral Embryology, and Oral Microbiology. I need this loan because I don't have the necessary economic means to continue studying. I live with my grandparents and my mother lives in another province, where she doesn't have a job or the resources to help me. Without this loan, I will not be able to achieve my dream, accomplish my goals to be a professional and give to the world a different person full of capabilities and characteristics, intellectual as well as other characteristics that serve the same goal. Truly, this loan would change my life in a great way. First, because it would open a door towards self-improvement, which is something I have always admired and above all, desired. Secondly, it would make me a better person because though this loan I could continue studying and aquaria the knowledge necessary to finish my studies and develop as a professional in the social environment.
