Awilda Altagracia's story

Awilda Altagracia is a young medical student who is asking for a loan to pay for her studies. This is her story:

My name is Awilda Altagracia, I am 21 years old and live in Sabaneta, La Vega. I live with my mother who is a housewife and my father who is a farmer, as well as my two sisters and one brother. I am studying medicine at UCATECI and am in the seventh semester. I like this career as I will be able to use it to serve those in need in society. My favourite subjects are anatomy and microbiology. My reason for needing a loan is that I don't have enough money to carry on studying and in my area a lot of doctors are needed to help those most in need. My goal is to be successful in my studies and get good grades so that one way or another my parents will feel proud of me and, as I already mentioned, to help those who need me. I hope to be lucky with the loan so I can continue towards my big goals.
