Mercedes's story

Mercedes is a 25-year-old student enrolled in a program in The Private University of Guaira to become a licensed nurse.

She mentions also that she works as a civil servant for the Secretaria Nacional de la Vivienda y el Hábitat (Ministry of Housing and Habitat). With a great deal of effort, Mercedes is managing to cover her educational expenses such as registration fees, educational materials, and other expenses.

Her dream is to finish her course, become a professional nurse and serve her community.

With this loan she will pay her current fees for this school year and pay her examination fees. She wishes to thank Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for offering their support, since thanks to this loan she will be able to continue studying.
