Abrahan dreams of becoming a lawyer, but without a degree, he knows it may never be possible. To achieve his goal, Abrahan has enrolled in the Universidad Mayor de San Andrés. 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 a this loan, Abrahan plans to cover the cost of his graduation fees. Often, there are fees for earning your title in law before graduating. Abrahan currently works 30 hours a week. One of his biggest challenges has been making time to work and go to school. With a career in business, he expects to earn $17 a day, a substantial increase from before.
Abrahan's parents were never able to complete their primary education. With four younger brothers and four younger sisters, Abrahan hopes to be a role model for his younger siblings by being the first in his family to graduate from university. Abrahan is married with his own children, but this has not stopped him from pursuing his dreams. With a professional degree and a career in law, he will be able to provide his family with a better life.
