A loan of $1,300 helped to pay for an English course.


Melissa's story

Melissa is 24 years old and studying Food Science at university. She chose to follow this degree course because it is an area of study in which she has always been interested. Right now, she is in her final year and, in spite of some difficulties with the content of her course, she continues studying. Melissa dedicates around 9 to 10 hours a day to her studies and would like to specialize in quality control and take some other specialization courses such as English language. In the future, she wants to prepare her dissertation and gain her degree. She makes all this effort with the sole aim of becoming a good professional and helping her parents who have placed their trust in her. Melissa feels very grateful for this loan because it will enable her to pay for her English course. She would like to thank Kiva lenders for placing their trust in her and in many other young people.
