A loan of $600 helped to pay for textbooks.


Guido's story

To achieve his goal, Guido has enrolled in Pedro Domingo Murillo. He expects to graduate in December 2013, but without a loan 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. Guido shares that it is important to him to graduate on time so he can enter into the job market as soon as possible.

With the loan, Guido plans on using 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. With a career in business, he expects to earn $9 a day. Unfortunately, Guido'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. With two older siblings attending college already, Guido is unsure how he will be able to finance his education on his own without the assistance of a Kiva Loan. To help afford his school and living expenses, Guido currently works 25 hours a week.

This loan is administered by Vittana's partner Banco Fie.
