Esmarlin


A loan of $6,050 helped to pay for medical school.


Esmarlin's story

Esmarlin is a young medical student who's requesting a loan to be able to pay for her studies. This is her story:

My name is Esmarlin. I'm a native and resident of San Pedro de Macorís Province. I'm the daughter of divorced parents and I live with my mother. My family is low income; my mother's a school secretary and my father's in law enforcement. That's why it's practically an uphill battle to pay for my studies. I'm currently in my sixth semester of medical school.

I love my program and don't want to miss out on finishing it. I don't have enough money to continue, however, and my only option is to choose the Kiva-FUNDAPEC project so I can move forward with my dream of being a doctor.

My desire is to be able to help everyone who needs it because it pains me to see how many people suffer when they don't have anyone to lend them a hand or give them a decent doctor's appointment. It also hurts to see how many doctors there are in emergency rooms who are indifferent to the pain of many of the people who are laid up there.
