Erika Milagros's story

We commonly see stories of enterprising people who have a lot of enthusiasm for their businesses. However, in this case the story is of a young student who has a great desire to get ahead in her studies which, in the future, will ensure her a secure and reliable job, enabling her to work effectively in a competitive work environment.

The student in question is Erika Jiménez, a young 23 year-old student who is in her first year of a vocational course in Industrial Management. She is optimistic about her studies and when she finishes studying Industrial Management she plans to have her studies validated by a University so that she can work towards a degree.

In her spare time, Erika works as a cosmetologist in a beauty salon in order to make extra money. Erika will invest the loan which she has been granted in paying for her studies. Erika is a young student who is full of creativity and who studies hard. Her future goal is to successfully complete her studies.
