A loan of $650 helped to buy books and pay for her degree certification.

Jassel Raquel's story

Jassel is a single, 22-year-old woman who is in the fifth year of her Industrial Engineering studies.

This is the second loan she has requested, which will go towards the purchase of books and encyclopedias that are necessary to strengthen her studies. The loan will also cover the cost of her degree certification. Her father supports her financially with the loan payments.

In addition to studying, she sells flip-flops, personal products, and home products to help cover her expenses. She was able to acquire her own computer with the last loan. This has made studying easier by allowing her to have her own tool with which to complete her assignments and do research.
