A loan of $725 helped to pay for her university education.

Xiomara's story

Xiomara is married and has two children. She is a school teacher and gives Spanish classes 8 hours a day. She started working when she was 17 years old.

Xiomara is studying education at the undergraduate level and has reached her last year of the major with the help of her family. She is requesting this loan for her university education costs. She would be greatly affected without this loan because her diploma will position her for a higher-paying job. She will be able to move forward rather than waiting longer to receive her diploma.

Teaching interests Xiomara because it will also allow her to work within a foundation for a soup kitchen in the community.

The message that Xiomara shares with people in other parts of the world is that opportunities are right in front of us, we just need to take on the challenges. The word "no" is not a defeat, but rather a challenge to overcome.
