A loan of $375 helped to pay her semester's fees.


Karen Dayan's story

This is Erika Dayan. She is someone who strives every day to improve herself academically and be a person of principles, values, ethics and morals, respectability and responsibility. Ever since she was a child, Erika has always dreamed of becoming a health professional, however this has been impossible because since she was very young Erika has had to work and study, as there was no one else to pay for her tuition. Everything she has now is a result of what she has been able to achieve by herself. Specialising in the Dental Health Assistant course will be very useful for Erika and complement her knowledge in the health field, which will provide her with better training as well as work opportunities. Erika is grateful to Kiva for their interest in subsidising specialist courses offered by the Campo Alto Institute. This provides opportunities to many people like Erika who don’t have a way of paying for a professional course.
