Zulema has always dreamt of becoming a professional. Zulema was accepted into Escuela Superior Simón Bolívar and now with the chance to achieve her dream is concerned about affording tuition fees. She plans on graduating in December 2014, but without a loan from Vittana she thinks that she may need to take time off to work and save money until she can return to school.
With the loan, Zulema plans to pay for her tuition. With a degree in business she expects to earn $17 a day. With two older siblings attending college already, Zulema is unsure how she will be able to finance her education on her own. Zulema's father's salary from his job as an educator is the family's primary source of income.
This loan is administered by Vittana's partner Banco Fie.
