For many years, Marisol has wanted to study. She desires a better future. But unfortunately, she lacks sufficient money or help from anyone.

One day she said “I'm going to study.” Marisol took account of all that was needed in her house and upon adding it all up, she saw that the children needed more resources for attending school and she decided not to study that year. Marisol thought first of her children's studies. But as days passed, she heard persons she knew speak of taking classes and of new facilities to obtain money for payments.

This year Marisol saw the opportunity and decided to study for a career. She wanted to work in a hospital, since 2 years ago, she had worked in a hospital in the archive next to the emergency room. She saw that in health care, people are needed to offer good service, humility, and a friendly hand. There are moments when people need help from others. One has to look deep inside to recognize that these are sick people with needs and difficulties and they lack sufficient resources.

To be able to do this, Marisol needed to prepare herself, study, and continue her contacts in the health field, if she were to receive better job offers in hospitals and clinics. But she must also continue caring for her children, preparing them for the university, since without a professional title it is very difficult to obtain a good job.

Marisol is grateful for the agreement with Kiva that could help her. With the Kiva loan, she will accomplish an important goal in her personal life. For many years, it has been her dream to finish her studies in health administration.

Desde hace varios años Marisol quería estudiar, ella quería tener un mejor futuro, pero desafortunadamente ella no contaba con suficiente dinero ni el apoyo de nadie.

Un cierto día dijo, este año voy a estudiar he hizo cuentas de todo lo que se gastaba en casa, al hacer sumas y restas vio que los hijos necesitaban más cosas para el colegio y ese año decidió no estudiar, ella pensó primero en el estudio de los hijos, en el transcurso de los días conoció personas, ellos hablaban de las clases y como habían facilidades de pago. Este año vio la oportunidad y ella decide estudiar esta carrera, a ella le gustaría trabajar en un futuro en los hospitales, ya que hace 2 años trabajo en un hospital en el archivo al lado de urgencias y vio que en la salud necesitan gente con buen servicio, humildad, una mano amiga, ya que en esos momentos es cuando ellos necesitan de la ayuda de los demás, tiene que mirar desde muy adentro del ser que ellos son personas enfermas con necesidades y dificultades y no cuentan con los recursos suficientes.

Marisol, para poder lograr esto necesita prepararse y estudiar, seguir con los contactos en la rama de la salud, para tener mejores propuestas de trabajo en los hospitales y clínicas y seguir adelante con los hijos y poderles brindar universidad, ya que sin un titulo es muy difícil conseguir un trabajo bueno.

Ella agradece a convenio KIVA para que la tengan en cuenta, ella necesita del convenio y poder cumplir una meta importante para la vida personal ya que desde muchos años esto es un sueño y ella lo quiere cumplir estudiando administración en salud.
