Mayra has always dreamt of becoming a professional. To achieve her goal, Mayra has enrolled in the Universidad Juan Misael Saracho. She plans on graduating in December 2013, but without a loan from Vittana she fears that she will need to defer her graduation.
With the loan, Mayra plans on purchasing her much needed textbooks and school supplies. With the proper books, Mayra feels she will be able to study more effectively and earn better grades. With a career in business, she expects to earn $20 a day, a substantial increase from before. With one older sibling attending college already, Mayra is unsure how she will be able to finance her education without the assistance of a Vittana loan. To help afford her school and living expenses, Mayra currently works 40 hours a week as an Administrative Assistant.
This loan is administered by Vittana's partner Banco Fie.
