Saul dreams of becoming a professional but without a degree he knows it may never be possible. Saul was accepted into Simon Bolivar and now with the chance to achieve his dream is concerned about affording his school supplies. He expects to graduate in December, 2014 but without a loan he is unsure how he will be able to continue affording his education.
Saul shares that it is important to him to graduate on time so he can enter into the job market as soon as possible. With this loan, Saul plans on purchasing his much needed textbooks and school supplies. With the proper books, Saul feels he will be able to study more effectively and earn better grades.
Saul's parents were never able to complete their primary education. For his family of 3, finances have always been tight. Saul is unsure how he will be able to finance his education on his own without the assistance of a Vittana Loan. Saul is married with his own child but this has not stopped him from pursing his dreams. With a professional degree and a career in business, he will be able to provide his family with a better life.
Saul hopes to be able to contribute towards his family's income in the near future. Saul currently works 30 hours a week as a teacher to help afford his school and living expenses.
