Carlos has always dreamt of becoming a veterinarian. He is currently attending the Universidad Pública de El Alto, working towards his degree in veterinary medicine. He expects to graduate in February 2017, but without a loan, he is unsure how he will be able to continue affording his education. He shares that his alternative would be to take time off from school to work and save money until he could return.
Carlos shares that it is important to him to graduate on time so he can enter into the job market as soon as possible. With a Vittana loan, Carlos plans to pay for his tuition.
