A loan of $2,000 helped to pay for textbooks and school supplies.

Marco Antonio's story

Marco dreams of becoming a professional. Marco is currently attending the Instituto Tecnológico Caranavi, working towards his degree in business. He expects to graduate in December 2014, but without a loan is unsure how he will be able to afford his education. His alternative would be to take time off from school to work and save money until he could return. Marco 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, Marco plans on spending the money towards purchasing his textbooks. As an added expense, textbooks are often not bought in order to save money. With them Marco hopes to be able to better understand his subjects. In addition to his responsibilities at school, Marco currently works 30 hours a week. With a degree in business, he expects to earn $14 a day.

Marco's parents were never able to complete their primary education. For his family of 5, finances have always been tight. As the youngest of 3, with two older siblings attending college already, Marco is unsure how he will be able to finance his education on his own.
