Pedro Enmanuel's story

Pedro Emmanuel is a young man who wants to study marketing. He is applying for a loan to be able to pay for his studies. This is his story:

My name is Pedro Emmanuel. I am 20 years old. I live in East Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. I am single. I have a sister, and my parents are divorced. I live with my mother, who hasn't been able to see since she was 7 years old, but this has not been an impediment in being able to raise her family. Now she is retired, even though in our country jobs are scarce for people with these conditions.

I have a great desire to study marketing, a career with which I identified since I was in secondary school. I would like to enter the APEC University. In spite of having completed my [secondary] studies two years ago, it has been difficult for me to begin university studies. It is for this reason that i have turned to this [source of] help.

I need this help because it is the way to be able to reach and make a reality of my dreams. With the achievement of my goals of being a great professional in the area of marketing, I will be able to give a better quality of life to my family.

Part of my dreams is to have a position in the area of marketing with a prestigious business before finishing my course of study. Thus at the time I finish my university studies, my academic knowledge will be complemented with acquired working knowledge and I will thus be able to occupy the best positions in the area.
