Nairobi's story

Nairobi is a dental student. She asks for the loan to pay for her studies and this is her story: My name is Nairobi and I am 21 years old. I was born in Los Botados and am the oldest of three siblings. I live in Yamasá in the province of Monte Plata. I am a humble and responsible person who likes to read and reflect on things before acting. My mother works taking care of a family’s home and my father works in a bakery. I want to study dentistry at the Universidad Odontológica Dominicana, as it is my calling to be a dentist. I don’t want to just be one of the many already out there, but rather I will make a difference as a great dentist. I need this loan because I am a person of not many means. Not having this loan means I won’t be able to pursue my career. I am certain that if I ask for this loan, my life will change for the better because I will have the opportunity to study dentistry. My goals are to be a star student and an excellent dentist. I want to work in a dental clinic or in a hospital and afterwards open my own office to help those in need. There are many people who can’t afford dental care, as it is very expensive.
