Mirian Mercedes
Mirian Mercedes is a nursing student. She is requesting a loan in order to cover all of her educational expenses. This is her story. Hello. My name is Mirian. I am 31 years old. I live in Sainagua, San Cristobal with my husband and two children. My home and the education of my children depend on my income as a domestic worker and that of my husband who works a school bus driver. It is necessary for me to obtain this loan because the income I receive for my family does not cover the nursing degree at the University of Eugenio Maria De Hostos. This degree would help me with two things I have dreamed about: to get my children ahead, to be an important person in society and to give my children an example that it is never too late to get ahead.
Without this base, I can not meet my goal or objectives. I have faith that you will help me get ahead with the economic support offered to me and with determination, I will be someone in the future and a family example.

Mirian Mercedes, es una mujer estudiante de Enfermería, ella solicita un préstamo para poder cubrir todos sus gastos educativo, esta es su historia. Hola soy Mirian, tengo 31 años de edad, resido en Sainagua, San Cristobal con mi esposo y mis dos hijos. Mi hogar y la educación de mis hijos dependen de mis ingresos como trabajadora domestica y de los de mi esposo como chofer de un transporte escolar. Es necesario para mi obtener este préstamo porque con los ingresos que percibo en mi familia no puedo costear la carrera de Enfermería en la Universidad Eugenio Maria De Hostos. Esta carrera me ayudaría para dos cosos que he soñado: echar adelante a mis hijos, ser una persona importante en la sociedad, dar un ejemplo a mis hijos de que nuca es tarde para echar hacia adelante.
Sin este fondo no puedo cumplir mis metas ni objetivos, pero tengo fe en que ustedes me ayudaran a echar adelante con la ayuda económica que me pueden ofrecer y de mi parte con el empeño de ser alguien en el mañana y un ejemplo familiar.
