Sharleny is a young medicine school student and is asking for this loan to pay her tuition costs. This is her story: I am Sharleny, I am 25 years old and was born and raised in the Maria Auxiliadora sector of Santo Domingo, where my mother currently lives.

I am a single mother and I currently do not receive income for health problems. The income that we receive in my home comes from my three older brothers who have formed their own families.

The income that my mother and I receive is insufficient to finish my degree in medicine, which I have already started at the Technological Institute of Santa Domingo. I only have eight more trimesters left to finish my studies. I don’t see myself doing anything in my life other than tending to patients and salving lives because studying medicine means helping others and contributing to society using my knowledge and my hands as instruments of good. I will contribute what I can to be both professional and caring.

Receiving this loan is a huge opportunity for me because if I do not get it I will have no way to finish my medicine degree, which has been my dream since I was little. Finishing my studies can also help out my mother.

Sharleny es un joven estudiante de medicina, ella solicita un préstamo para poder pagar sus gastos educativos, esta es su historia:Soy Sharleny, tengo 25 años de edad, nací y crecí en el sector María Auxiliadora, Santo Domingo en la cual actualmente resido con mi madre. Soy madre soltera y actualmente no percibo ingresos por problemas de salud, los ingresos que recibimos en mi hogar es por parte de mis tres hermanos mayores los cuales ya han formado su propia familia.
Los ingresos que recibimos mi madre y yo son insuficientes para poder terminar mi carrera de Medicina ya iniciada en el Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo donde me faltarían 8 trimestres. No me visualizo haciendo nada más en mi vida que sea verme atendiendo pacientes y salvando vidas, porque estudiar Medicina significa poder ayudar a los demás y contribuir a la sociedad haciendo que mis conocimientos y mis manos sean instrumentos de bien y aportando mi granito de arena sirviendo tanto en el ámbito profesional como humanitario.
Obtener este préstamo es una oportunidad inmensa para mí porque si no lo obtengo no tendría forma de concluir la carrera de medicina, lo cual es mi sueño desde que era pequeña y concluyendo mis estudios también puedo ser un aporte para mi madre.
