A loan of $325 helped to pay for a semester’s tuition.

Jessica Yusbreidy's story

Jessica was a 14-year-old girl who attended school up to the 9th grade. She had to postpone her studies because she got pregnant at a young age but in her mind she had never left behind the desire to get ahead. She waited a long year so that her daughter could grow a little more. She wanted to finish her studies and graduate so that she could provide a good future for her daughter. Finishing school at age 17, she had placed for herself the goal of studying in a university but for lack of time she hadn’t been able to enter as her daughter was still young and she couldn't do much more than care for her.

Now, at age 19, she landed a stable job where the ease of her schedule gives her enough time with her daughter and also makes it easy for her to study. She found in Campo Alto the opportunity to study as in the institute they offered her a schedule that fits with what her work requires. At this time her goal for the future is to graduate from Campo Alto in early childhood care and thus be able to improve academically and be able to dedicate more time to what she has always liked.

The agreement that Campo Alto is offering with Kiva would be of great help to her as she is the only one who pays for her studies and the value of the monthly installments is a little costly. With the money that she could save in the payment of her monthly installments she can invest in the things that her studies and her daughter require from her.
