A loan of $600 helped to pay for graduation fees.


Catherine's story

Catherine has always dreamt of becoming a professional. She is currently attending the Instituto Tecnico Señor De Mayo, working towards her degree in nursing. 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.

Catherine plans on using the loan to pay her graduation fees. This fee is often more expensive than the semester's tuition and is a frequent impediment for graduating students in La Paz.

In addition to her responsibilities at school, Catherine currently works 30 hours a week and earns $10 a day as a medical assistant to help her afford her school and living expenses. With a career in nursing, she expects to earn $20 a day, a substantial increase from before.

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