A loan of $1,000 helped purchase a computer and pay for his university tuition.

Moisés Isaías's story

Moisés is 22 years old and is in the fourth year of his computer science program at the university, thanks to the efforts of his father and his siblings, who support him to reach his goal. His mother passed away four years ago. He now lives alone in his home, as his siblings have all married and have their own families. His father works to support him in getting ahead. On his days off, he works as a mason's assistant or as a day laborer on various jobs, which allow him to earn an income since he attends school from Monday to Thursday.

He is requesting a loan to purchase a computer, valued at $700, and the rest will be used to pay his college tuition. This way, he will have his own equipment to do the homework that he is assigned at school. One of his biggest dreams is to complete his studies and to work to improve his conditions.
