Elena Vanessa
Elena has always dreamt of becoming an engineer. Elena is currently attending the Universidad San Fransisco Xavier, working towards her degree in petroleum engineering. She plans on graduating in July, 2014 but without a loan from Vittana she fears that she will need to defer her graduation. With a loan, Elena plans on purchasing her much needed textbooks and school supplies. With the proper books, Elena feels she will be able to study more effectively and earn better grades. In addition to her responsibilities at school, Elena currently works 30 hours a week. With two older siblings attending college already, Elena is unsure how she will be able to continue her education on her own without the assistance of a Vittana Loan.
