Nelson Marcelo's story
Nelson dreams of becoming a professional but without a degree, knows it may never be possible. To achieve his goal, Nelson has enrolled in the Universidad Autónoma Juan Misael Saracho. He plans to graduate in June 2014 but without a loan from Vittana, he fears that he will need to defer his graduation. Nelson plans to use his loan to buy his school books. Up until now, he has been managing to get by without them but it has become a challenge. With books and school supplies, he feels he will be able to get better grades. One of his biggest challenges has been making time to work and go to school. Unfortunately, Nelson's parents never had the opportunity to complete their high school education. Without the opportunity for a higher degree, his parents never had the chance to move up. Growing up, finances have always been tight. Nelson currently works 25 hours a week as a security guard to help afford his school and living expenses. This loan is administered by Vittana's partner BancoFie.
