Reynaldo Guillermo's story

Reynaldo, 22, is single and is studying for a degree in electromechanical engineering in a well-known university in the city of La Paz. He is working to pay for his education. Reynaldo works as a driver in his free time, using his father's taxi; this is how he generates some extra income. This is his first loan with the institution. Reynaldo will use this loan to cover the various costs of being a student, such as for books in his discipline. He has 3 more years to go to get his degree. Reynaldo faces challenges in his studies, such as the fact that he must work and so cannot study 100 percent of the time. However, he has the desire to continue and move forward. When he finishes his degree, he wants to work in his profession so that he can improve his quality of life and that of his family.
