Katia Joanna's story
Katia is a student requesting a loan to cover her education costs. This is her story: My name is Katia, I'm 17 years old, and I live with my paternal grandmother in Ensanche Ozama in Santo Domingo. Thanks to my high GPA in high school, I was favored for a 50% scholarship at the Universidad Iberoamericana (UNIBE), to carry out my higher studies. I haven't begun pursuing a career of Business Administration, due to my difficulty paying the other 50% of the tuition. If I don't receive this loan I will not be able to start my studies and will lose the 50% scholarship. On the other had, if I were given the loan, I would accomplish my goal of becoming a professional and thus would not only help my family move forward, but would also contribute to the development of my country. My academic goals are: finish my educational career with a high GPA, as I usually do, and then be able to enter the my country's workforce. I will continue studying to learn more about my career in the public and private sector of my country.
