Brian Cristian
Brian dreams of becoming a mechanic. Brian is currently attending the Instituto Ceta, working towards his degree in mechanics. He plans to graduate in December 2014, but without a loan from Vittana, he fears that he will need to defer his graduation. With this loan, Brian plans to purchase his textbooks. As an added expense, textbooks are often not bought to save money. With them, Brian hopes to be able to better understand his subjects. Brian currently works 30 hours a week. One of his biggest challenges has been making time to work and go to school. With one older sibling, Brian is unsure how he will be able to complete his education on his own without the assistance of a Vittana loan.
