Lisbeth dreams of becoming a finance expert but without a degree, she knows it may never be possible. Lisbeth is currently attending the Universidad San Fransisco Xavier, working towards her degree in finance. She expects to graduate in March 2016 but without a loan, is unsure how she will be able to continue affording her education. She shares that her alternative would be to take time off from school to work and save money until she could return. Lisbeth shares that it is important to her to graduate on time so she can enter into the job market as soon as possible. With this loan, Lisbeth plans to purchase her much needed textbooks and school supplies. With the proper books, Lisbeth feels she will be able to study more effectively and earn better grades. With a degree in finance she expects to earn $20 a day. With one older sibling attending college already, Lisbeth is unsure how she will be able to finance her education on her own without the assistance of a Vittana Loan.
