Yeymi has enrolled in the Instituto Tecnológico Caranavi. She plans on graduating in December 2013, 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 the loan, Yeymi plans on using the loan to cover the cost of her graduation fees. Often there are fees for earning your title in business before graduating. One of her biggest challenges has been making time to work and go to school. Currently, Yeymi earns $9 a day. With a degree in business she expects to earn $14 a day. With one younger brother, Yeymi hopes to be a role model for her younger siblings by being the first in her family to graduate from university. To help afford her school and living expenses, Yeymi currently works 40 hours a week as a logistics coordinator.
This loan is administered by Vittana's partner Banco Fie.
