A loan of $725 helped to pay for her thesis fees so she can graduate.


Rosmery's story

In Bolivia, submitting a thesis and receiving a degree are accompanied by fees. In fact, the final semester of many university programs is often more expensive than any other part of the university experience. Rosmery is ready to graduate and earn her law degree but she is stuck. Unable to afford the final step of her program, she faces the threat of having to postpone her education and return to work. Rosmery’s parents own a barbershop and make just enough to support their four children. Rosmery has a child of her own and as the oldest, she wants to set a good example for her brothers and be the first in her family to earn a university degree. She is passionate about law and shares that she “loves reading and truly cares about the laws and obligations of all people.” With her degree she hopes to be able to improve her city of Sucre. She describes it as a “beautiful city with lots of culture.”
