Brahiner’s story

Brahiner comes from a very poor family, very hardworking and selfless. He is studying for a career in medicine and dreams of becoming a doctor and helping others with his knowledge.
He comments that this is his next to last year of studies and that he dreams of being a professional and making a difference, not just for himself but also for others.
He is requesting this loan in order to pay higher education costs. Covering his costs, which are very high, enables him to continue studying. 

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Pamela Allyn View original language description 

This loan is special because:

It funds students who are just beginning their university studies.
