A loan of $1,375 helped to pay for student housing for one semester at her university.

Jackelin Sindy's story

Twenty-four-year-old Jackelin is a food engineering student.

Jackelin has always been interested in the food industry, which is where her interest in pursuing this career was born. That is why she applied at a local university and five months ago she started her classes. She dedicates a lot of time to her studies; her main goal is to keep progressing so she can finish and being practicing her profession. In the future, she would like to establish herself in a food-making business. Her loan will allow her to pay for student housing for one semester at her university. She believes the help she has received is very important, as it is thanks to your loans that she will be able to continue her studies. In many cases a lack of financial means is an obstacle for young people.

Jackelin would like to thank the Kiva lenders for helping her with her desire to better herself.
