A loan of $800 helped to pay off her graduation expenses.

Vilma's story

Vilma, 33, is single woman who is very dedicated to her education. Currently she is finishing her advanced studies in nursing.

Vilma is a fighter and a modest, hardworking person who is finishing her studies with a lot of hard work. Often she needs to travel from where she lives to where she goes to school, which is two-and-a-half hours by bus.

Thanks to her family she has continued with her studies. She says it has been a big struggle to realize her dream of graduating as a nurse, to work in her profession supported by her family and her community.

The loan that Vilma is requesting is to pay off the expenses to graduate with her degree and to make her biggest dream come true. She says she will continue to fight to achieve her goals, such as having a job to help her family and improve her house. If possible, she would like to continue studying to be better prepared academically.
