Laura Nathaly
This is the story of a young student named Laura Nathaly, who has many dreams and goals to achieve and is full of enthusiasm and desire to get ahead.

The proof of this is that she's studying for a nursing assistant degree while she's in high school. This was complicated because while she was in 10th grade, she did the first and second semester of this course, so she was studying every day, completely immersed in reading, every day remembering where she wanted to go.

Her parents supported her a lot, and not only financially. They understand how important the subject of health is for her - not just because it has to do with helping others, but also because she's known since she was little that this is definitively what she wanted to do for the rest of her life and what she wanted to live for.

Being in her third semester and in 11th grade, a series of family and economic problems began to develop, worrying this young woman and her family.

She thought about postponing the semester and told the institution that it was likely she would not be able to continue this degree for some time.

They told her they had an agreement with Kiva, which could offer her financial assistance so she wouldn't have to defer her studies, much less end them.

This help serves her and other students, as they can successfully continue with practices, a stage of life in which she's had excellent performance. Finishing high school and a degree provides many reasons to celebrate, as her family feels very proud of her.
