Luz Eneida's story

Luz Eneida is 29 years old, and her family is made up of two beautiful girls who are 3 and 9 years old, and her husband. She decided to study oral health because she has always been interested in it. She is passionate about being able to help others and thinks that one way she can help people is by helping them improve their oral health. She loves to fix teeth and examine mouths and thinks that if a person has a healthy mouth and a nice smile, they will look and feel good and be a happy person.

The reason why she decided to study oral health is that she hopes that in the near future, with God's and her family's help, she will be able to specialize and be one of the best dentists in the country, travel to other countries, have her own office, have people who help her and people who she can help. This is why she wants the help that KIVA provides. She needs to work and study at the same time, and now while she is doing her internship she can only work part-time. What she is earning is not enough to cover the household expenses and her studies. She had help from KIVA her first semester and she hopes that in the second semester they will continue to provide this great help. She hopes that her dreams will not be frustrated by having to leave school.

All her life she has dreamed of being independent and having her own office. She is sure that with God's help and her strong desire, she will achieve her goal - everything in life is achievable if you set your mind to it and if you want to get ahead. She is putting all her effort into this and will not let anything get in the way of achieving her goal. She is doing this for her daughters, too, because she wants to give them a good future and a sense of well being. She wants them to study and become professionals so that in the future they can help people in whatever way is needed.
