A loan of $725 helped to pay for tuition fees.


Jose Silvestre's story

Working in systems engineering is Jose's dream. Jose is currently attending the Universidad Salesiana de Bolivia, working towards his degree in business. He expects to graduate in December, 2013, but without a loan is unsure how he will be able to continue affording his education. He says that his alternative would be to take time off from school to work and save money until he could return. Jose says that it is important to him to graduate on time so he can enter into the job market as soon as possible.

With a $714 loan, Jose plans on using the funds to pay his tuition while he saves his salary from his part-time job. With a career in business, he expects to earn $25 a day, a substantial increase from before. To help afford his school and living expenses, Jose currently works 30 hours a week as a information technician and earns $5 a day.
