A loan of $1,500 helped to study for a postgraduate qualification.

Luis Carlos's story

Luis Carlos lives in Juigalpa with his parents, on whom he is financially dependent as he does not yet work. His Mum is a housewife and his Dad is the one whose earnings cover the household expenses. Although his Dad has his own Doctor's surgery, the higher education course which his son (a good student) is applying for is too expensive. Luis Carlos holds a bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering and, in order to continue his professional studies, he has to travel to Managua (137 kms from where he lives) to do a Postgraduate course. He hopes that the qualification in Quality Management and Innovation in business will enable him to use his expertise for the good of society and the well-being of his family.
