Jhoana dreams of becoming a business administrator. Jhoana is currently attending the Universidad Mayor De San Andrés, working towards her degree. She plans to graduate in December 2016 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, Jhoana plans to purchase her textbooks. As an added expense, textbooks are often not bought to save money. With them, Jhoana hopes to be able to better understand her subjects. With a career in business administration, she expects to earn $15 a day. With one younger brother, Jhoana hopes to be a role model for her younger sibling by being the first in her family to graduate from a university.
