Liz dreams of working in tourism. She is currently attending the Universidad San Fransisco Xavier, working towards her degree. She plans on graduating in December, 2013 but without a loan from Vittana she thinks that she may need to take time off to work and save until she can return to school.
With this loan, Liz plans on using the funds to pay her tuition while she saves her salary from her part time job. In addition to her responsibilities at school, Liz currently works 30 hours a week as a saleswoman. With one older sibling attending college already, Liz is unsure how she will be able to finance her education on her own without the assistance of a Vittana Loan.
