A loan of $225 helped to finish her CampoAlto program in Marketing and Sales.

Jeimy Catherin's story

Jeimy, 18, is currently studying her second semester of marketing and sales at CampoAlto. She has always wanted to succeed and to be someone in her life, so she started to work at the age of 15 in a family home, where they knew her mother and gave her the opportunity to work from 3pm to 7pm. She really stood out and they recommended her to their relatives, who also offered her work in the mornings. They were very good people, and thanks to them she was able to save up for a year and a half so that she could take on a technical degree.

Afterwards, she decided to change jobs because she started studying and she could no longer comply with her work schedule, so she sold chorizo in butcher's shops and restaurants. She has always liked being independent and obtaining her own things, even though her family has supported her as much as they could and they have always wanted her to have more opportunities than they had.

She wants to finish her program at CampoAlto so that she can obtain a better job position in order to continue studying and finish her professional degree in marketing and advertising. This will allow her to help her younger sister, so that she can study a university degree when she finishes high school and dedicate herself solely to her studies.

She has also thought about opening her own lingerie store in the future, where she will be able to apply all of the knowledge which she has acquired and to create employment for at least one person. She would also like to learn languages and thus have the opportunity to travel to other countries, perhaps finding a job and obtaining a better quality of life for her family.
