Becoming a professional has always been Evert's dream. To achieve his goal, Evert has enrolled in the Universidad Autónoma Juan Misael Saracho. He plans on graduating in December 2013, but without a loan from Vittana, he thinks that he may need to take time off to work and save until he can return to school.
With this loan, Evert plans on purchasing his much-needed textbooks and school supplies. With the proper books, Evert feels he will be able to study more effectively and earn better grades.
Evert currently works 30 hours a week. One of his biggest challenges has been making time to work and go to school. Currently, Evert earns $15 a day. With a degree in business, he expects to earn $22 a day.
With two younger brothers and one younger sister, Evert hopes to be a role model for his younger siblings by being the first in his family to graduate from university.
This loan is administered by Vittana's partner, Banco Fie.
