Mirian Mercedes's story

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.
