Igemar dreams of becoming a professional. To achieve his goal, Igemar has enrolled in the Universidad Mayor De San Andrés. He plans on graduating in September, 2017, but without a loan from Vittana, he fears that he will need to defer his graduation.
With this loan, Igemar plans to purchase his textbooks. As an added expense, textbooks are often not purchased in order to save money. With them, Igemar hopes to be able to better understand his coursework.
As the youngest of four, with one older sibling attending college already, Igemar is unsure how he will be able to finance his education on his own without the assistance of a Vittana loan. Igemar's father works in the military, and his salary is the family's primary source of income.
