She plans on graduating in December, 2013, but without a loan from Vittana, she fears that she will need to defer her graduation.
Romina plans on using the loan funds to pay her graduation fee. This fee is often more expensive than the semester's tuition and is a frequent impediment for graduating students in Tarija.
