Oscar dreams of becoming a professional, but without a degree knows it may never be possible. Oscar was accepted into the Universidad San Fransisco Xavier and now with the chance to achieve his dream is concerned about affording tuition fees. He expects to graduate in December 2014, but without a loan is unsure how he will be able to continue affording his education. His alternative would be to take time off from school to work and save money until he could return. It is important to him to graduate on time so he can enter into the job market as soon as possible.
With the loan, Oscar plans on purchasing his much needed textbooks and school supplies. With the proper books, Oscar feels he will be able to study more effectively and earn better grades. To help afford his school and living expenses, Oscar currently works 30 hours a week as an independent contractor. One of his biggest challenges has been making time to work and go to school. Currently Oscar earns $7 a day. With a degree in business he expects to earn $15 a day. With three other siblings Oscar is unsure how he will be able to finance his education without the assistance of a Vittana Loan.
