Becoming a professional accountant has always been Judith's dream. Judith was accepted into the Universidad Saint Paul and now with the chance to achieve her dream, she is concerned about affording tuition fees. She plans on graduating in December, 2013 but without a loan from Vittana she fears that she will need to defer her graduation. With a loan, Judith plans on purchasing her much needed textbooks and school supplies. With the proper books, Judith feels she will be able to study more effectively and earn better grades. One of her biggest challenges has been making time to work and go to school. To help afford her school and living expenses, Judith currently works 40 hours a week as a accounting assistant. With a degree in accounting she expects to earn $15 a day. With one older sibling attending college already, Judith is unsure how she will be able to finance her education on her own without the assistance of a Vittana Loan.
