A loan of $4,225 helped to pay for higher education expenses.

Dania's story

Dania is a young Accounting student. She is asking for a loan to be able to pay her educational expenses.

This is her story: My name is Dania. I am 21 years old. I am Dominicana and am single. I was born and grew up in Santo Domingo, National District, alongside my mother (who is a homemaker) and my three siblings.

I want to keep studying in the Universidad del Caribe, where my studies towards a degree in Accounting allow me to work without having to leave my studies.

My needs related to this loan are that I am a person of few resources. I work, and the money I earn doesn’t cover my studies. This loan is ultimately necessary for me because without the support of Kiva and Fundapec I will not be able to keep studying.

My academic goals are to always have excellent grades, that my family would always be proud of me because I am the only one who is studying, and that I would manage to have a university degree. One of my dreams is to be able to help my family financially and have a family which is full of love. I want to teach my children the value of life, and that it is necessary to fight to be able to arrive, and that each time you fall, it is necessary to get yourself back up, always putting God ahead of everything.
