A loan of $8,225 helped to pay tuition for her medical studies.


Ana Maria's story

Ana María is a young student of medicine. She is asking for a loan to be able to pay for her studies. This is her story: I am Ana María. I am 20 years old, single and have no children. I live in the city of la Vega where I was born I was raised in Constanza. I am the youngest of three children. My mother is a housewife and my father sells eggs in my native city.

I started to study medicine at the Universidad Católica Tecnológica del Cibao (UCATECI). I enjoy it and can identify with it a lot. Treating human beings, to be able to help them inspires me.

I need the loan in order to be able to finish my studies. If I don't get the loan I will have to discontinue my studies until I find some other way to pay my fees with the possibility of not ever finishing. If I get the loan then I'll have the opportunity to quickly finish my studies.

Then I would be assured of a better future for my family and for society. I want to graduate with good grades and recognition, provide my family with a better quality of living and find good employment in the health field. Later I will specialize in General Surgery.
