Antonia's story

Becoming an accountant is Antonia's dream. She is currently attending Tecnologico Tarija, working towards her degree in accounting. She shares that her alternative would be to take time off from school to work and save money until she could return. Antonia shares that it is important to her to graduate on time so she can enter into the job market as soon as possible.

Antonia plans on spending the money towards purchasing her textbooks. As an added expense, textbooks are often not bought to save money. With them, Antonia hopes to be able to better understand her subjects. With a career in accounting, she expects to earn $20 a day, a substantial increase from before.

Unfortunately, Antonia'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. Growing up, their finances have always been tight.
