A loan of $3,625 helped to cover tuition costs for her university studies in Business Administration.

Danilsa's story

Danilsa is a young woman pursuing a university degree in Business Administration. She is requesting this loan to help cover tuition costs for her degree. This is her story:

My name is Danilsa, and I am 18 years old. I was born and raised in Santo Domingo, and I currently live there with my parents and siblings. I am the third of five children in our family, and we all live in a small house in the Azul de los Ríos neighborhood.

From the time I was very young, I loved school and academic work. I always put forth my best effort in all my classes, and as a result I am now studying Business Administration at O&M University. I am in my third semester of the program, and my favorite course subjects thus far include: administration, accounting and financial mathematics. I chose this career specifically because I love all the practical applications of Business Administration: working with clients, business concepts, being on a team with coworkers and the responsibility that comes along with being a professional and an entrepreneur. I can't imagine myself in any other field, and I hope to leverage my education and professional skills to support my family and improve their quality of life.

My family is facing several financial challenges and strains at the moment, so a loan like this gives me the best chance to be able to stay in my university program. As a family of seven with five children, my mother works as a cook in a private home and my father works on contract with a decorations company. Both of them make minimum wage and are no longer able to help me with tuition costs. I sincerely thank you in advance for your support and generosity, and for the opportunity to pursue my degree and my life dreams.
