Bruno has always dreamt of becoming a leader in international business. He was accepted into the Universidad Tecnológica Boliviana, and now with the chance to achieve his dream, is concerned about affording tuition fees. He plans on graduating in January, 2016, 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.
Bruno plans on spending the loan towards purchasing his textbooks. As an added expense, textbooks are often not bought to save money. With them, Bruno hopes to be able to better understand his subjects. With three younger sisters, Bruno hopes to be a role model for his younger siblings by being the first in his family to graduate from university.
