Tatiana dreams of becoming an architect, but she knows that without a degree, it may never be possible. To achieve her goal, Tatiana has enrolled in the Universidad Juan Misael Saracho. She plans on graduating in December, 2013, but without a loan from Vittana she fears that she will need to defer her graduation.
Tatiana plans on using the loan to cover the cost of her graduation fees. Often there are fees for earning your title in architecture before graduating. With a degree in architecture she expects to earn $30 a day. Tatiana hopes to be a role model for her three younger siblings by being the first in her family to graduate from university. To help afford her school and living expenses, Tatiana currently works 40 hours a week as a quality control inspector and earns $17 a day.
