She is studying a master in law, she has a degree and now studying a post graduate degree. She is interested in judicial matters and they require comprehension and analysis of texts to present with good presentation skills. "Once a friend told me that studying law was complicated because you had to memorize the law, I told her that was not the case but that it required other qualities and skills, I understood that memorizing the law is not the same as knowing the law..." she comments. She will complete her degree successfully, because she has a lot of work experience. The advantage of her studies, is that she will stay updated with norms and procedures. The disadvantage is the lack of money to pay her tuition. Her dream is to finish studying and get a better job in the company where she works, she wants to pay for the tuition to get a discount. This is her first loan cycle with the institution in the two years since she started her masters. For this reason Erika requests a loan to pay for her tuition, get a discount and get promoted at work.
