A loan of $1,475 helped to purchase textbooks and other school-related items.


Mariela's story

Mariela dreams of becoming a business administrator but without a degree knows it may never be possible. To achieve her goal, Mariela has enrolled in the Universidad Autónoma Juan Misael Saracho. She plans on graduating in December, 2014, but without a loan from Vittana she fears that she will need to defer her graduation. With this loan, Mariela plans on purchasing textbooks and other school-related items. With these supplies Mariela hopes to be able to better understand her subjects.

Unfortunately, Mariela's parents never had the opportunity to complete their high school education. Without the opportunity for a higher degree, her parents never had the chance to move up. With one older sibling attending college already, Mariela is unsure how she will be able to finance her education on her own without the assistance of a loan from Banco Fie. Mariela's father works as a farmer and his salary is the family's primary source of income.

To support her family and studies, Mariela currently works 30 hours a week in a bakery and has been doing so since the age of 16. One of her biggest challenges has been making time to work and go to school. With a career in business administration, she expects to earn $15 a day, a substantial increase from before.
