A loan helped to pay higher education expenses.

Franchesca's story

Franchesca is a young Medical student. She is requesting a loan to be able to pay her educational expenses and this is her story:

"I am Franchesca. I am 29 years old. I was born in San Juan de la Maguana, a city located in the south of the Dominican Republic and I currently reside in Santo Domingo. I am the fourth of 6 siblings and live with my mother who works as a caretaker in a public school. My father passed away 4 months ago.

I intend to continue studying medicine at the universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo but for economic reasons and because of the illness that my father suffered I could not advance. The reason that I am applying for this educational loan is to continue my studies. My mother's income is not sufficient to pay for university and support my family.

It is my dream to become a great doctor graduating with high marks and apply to do my residency in heart surgery which is the area I am thinking of specializing either working in the public or private sector. Later after all this it will give me the opportunity to have my family and obviously fulfill my responsibilities to society.

I thank in advance your hopefully favorable reception to this request as not to receive this loan I will not be able to get ahead as I truly wish. This would produce a stalemate and the loss of opportunity that I will have if you approve my loan".
