A loan of $1,100 helped to pay for his higher education.

Maksim's story

Maksim is a first-year student at the American University of Central Asia, department of Psychology. Here is his story:

“Considering myself as a quite serious and ambitious person, knowing how education is important in the modern society, I made a certain research of all universities in Kyrgyzstan. On balance with all pros and cons, I decided for myself that I want to study at the American University of Central Asia. There are a couple of reasons which hit me upon the idea to study there, such as: quality of education, strong teaching staff, uncommon system to study compared with other local universities, an opportunity to get two diplomas, a possibility to create your own studying schedule and choose subjects in accordance with your interest and preferences.

To achieve my dream, I created an action plan. As a first step, I entered AUCA preparatory courses. Just in a half-year, I improved my TOEFL results from 430 to 519. My maths score/knowledge also became much better. This experience gave me an opportunity to see how the process of studies flows in AUCA.

Another reason which attracts more students is financial aid. I would like to apply for Kiva loan, too, as it will help me to cover my tuition fees at AUCA.”
