Evelin Johanna's story

Evelin Johanna is in medical school. She requests a loan so that she will be able to finish her education. This is her story: My name is Evelin Johanna. I am 23 years old, married, and I live with my husband in San Pedro de Macorí. I come from a very humble family with 5 children, and my family worked very hard to move us forward. My husband was not able to finish his education because he had to begin to work and, with his income, we could not afford for him to finance his education. I decided to study medicine in the Universidad Central del Este because it has always interested me and it is my dream. I would like to help the needy and make my contribution to society. My family has high hopes for me because they have seen my desire to overcome and, despite great difficulties, I have continued forward. The main reason why I am requesting this loan is because I have completed 8 quarters, or half of the course of study, and if I do not receive help, I will have to drop out of school. My goal is to study and become a great professional. I want to be a good person and a great doctor. It is important to me to finish my studies because it will be a great achievement and I will be able to have a career that I love.
