Daly has always dreamed of becoming a dentist. Daly is currently attending at the Universidad San Fransisco Xavier, working towards her degree in dentistry. She plans to graduate in the coming months but without a loan from Vittana, she thinks that she may need to take time off to work and save until she can return to school. With this loan, Daly plans to pay her tuition while she saves her salary from her part time job. In addition to her responsibilities at school, Daly currently works 30 hours a week and earns $9 a day. With a degree in dentistry, she expects to earn $15 a day during her first year out of school. Daly's parents were never able to complete their primary education. For her family of four, finances were always tight. With one older sibling, Daly is unsure how she will be able to afford her tuition fees on her own without the assistance of a Vittana Loan.
