Manuel Gonzalo's story

Manuel Gonzalo is 21 years old and a student in the field of business administration. He is currently in his second year of study at the University of Cesar Vallejo. Manuel Gonzalo wants to finish his studies so that he can run his own business and create employment for others. His mother is his greatest inspiration for trying to succeed professionally, and he also wants to give back something for all the strength and effort that she has put into helping him pay for his studies.

The loan he is receiving will be invested in the payment of his monthly tuition fees, since if he can make all of them he will get a discount.
