A loan of $300 helped to pay fees for a semester.


Ruth Mery's story

Ruth Mery is 58 years old. She has two children and she is in her third semester of Cosmetology and Esthetics.

She chose this course of study because she likes to serve and help care for the body. For her it means fulfilling herself as a person. She must take advantage of the opportunity Campo Alto provides for a technical course of study, because due to the economic situation it would be impossible to do.

She wants to become independent in the short term, creating her own business with her granddaughter, who also completed this course of study at Campo Alto and is going to do a Business Certificate this semester.

She needs the loan because she does not have a fixed job and she wants to ensure she will finish the semester at this institution that supports her personally and professionally.

The expectations when she finishes the program are to help her grandchildren undertake a course of study, since the only thing that should be left as an inheritance in life is studying, and to continue specializing in everything to do with Cosmetology and Esthetics in order to always be up to date in her career.
