Gertrudis Antonela's story

Gertrudis is from the city of President Franco, is 20 years old, and enrolled in her 3rd year in nursing and obstetrics at the Universidad del Norte (UNINORTE) in Ciudad del Este. She is a young person who is very dedicated to her studies and works in a business in the city's center. By means of this job she is able to pay for her studies as well as her other costs.

Her parents are merchants and very proud of their daughter who is already very responsible and studious and, in addition, is the only daughter in the family. She is a young person whose character is very appropriate for this profession; seeing her practice in her studies, one can sense that she has a vocation and character for this profession. She considers it very important to attend to people who need care to recover their health.

Now she wishes to seize the loan opportunity offered students by Fundación Paraguaya, that will help her pay for her studies and also, help her afford other costs that she wants to cover.
