Ruben's story

Rubén is a 35-year-old lawyer. He was born in La Paz, Bolivia. He is the youngest of seven brothers and lives with his mother, who depends on him entirely. He studied at the public university in the city of El Alto (Universidad Pública de El Alto).

Rubén works as a legal aide in the District Attorney's office of La Paz and his income supports the household. He would like to continue studying and updating his knowledge, so he is requesting a loan to study his Master's in Forensic Science and Criminology.

Rubén tells us that all the knowledge he'll learn earning his Master's will help him improve his job performance and increase his income. His dream, in the professional realm, is to reach an important position either in a public or private institution; in the personal realm, he hopes to make his family happy by offering them a good quality of life.

Rubén is thankful to those who give him the opportunity to realize his dreams.
