Mauricio's story

Mauricio comes from a humble family, his mother at only 16 years old and before knowing how to face life, assumed the responsibility to be mother and father. She tried to find a job to get ahead with her son, they moved to another city where she has been able to pay for his studies. He finished high school successfully, but after that his studies were truncated because of lack of money. The Campo Alto Institution gave him the opportunity to study with financial arrangements for every semester, Mauricio's mom's salary is not sufficient to pay for the money requested by the institution. Two semesters are left to finish which will allow Mauricio to find a job and earn income for him and his mother. Kiva's help is fundamental because with a lower payment schedule he can finance transportation, clothing and other requirements for practices and this subsidy would be really helpful.
