Uriel is currently attending the Universidad Mayor De San Andrés, working towards his degree in accounting and auditing. He plans on graduating in December, 2013 but without a loan from Vittana he thinks that he may need to take time off to work and save until he can return to school. Uriel plans on using the loan to cover the cost of his graduation fees. Often there are fees for earning your title in business before graduating. To help afford his school, Uriel works 30 hours a week but shares that making time to work and go to school has been one of his biggest challenges. With a career in accounting, he expects to earn $20 a day.
