ProPhilanthropy Beneficiary

Karla Lourdes Ana Gamarra Gutierrez – Publishing (Peru)

Karla knows that this loan is going to forever change her life. Without it, she would definitely have had to delay her academic progress and could not enroll in classes. Her alternative would be to leave school for several semesters and seek employment until she could save up enough money to enroll in a few courses. But thanks to lenders, Karla is right on track with her publishing studies, and a whole new world is opening up before her. Karla chose publishing because she sees it as somewhere to explore her creative and strategic talents. This education will benefit her greatly, as her studies expose her not just to one field of work but to many different areas, as she works with people in different careers. Karla feels that this will give her a more complete training which will be very beneficial to her in the long run. She likes that her field of work is not limited. Karla wants to encourage others to seize this opportunity. She says, “Do not lose hope or think that because of lack of money you cannot go on, because there are programs like this that can help people with low incomes, to move on, and get to be professionals.” Karla is determined to make the most of this opportunity that she has been given.
