Yojanan is 19 and was born in Ñuflo de Chávez Province in the Santa Cruz Department of Bolivia. He lives with his mother and three younger siblings and as a salesman in a furniture business.
Yojanan's life hasn't been easy; he was born when his mother was only 16, and his parents later split up, making the family's situation worse. Facing these problems with his mother and siblings taught Yojanan responsibility, and he strives to fulfill his dreams and make his life better.
Yojanan's Business Administration courses have inspired him, and he feels that he has the abilities and qualities to be a strong manager in any setting, personal or professional. Yojanan's income, however, isn't enough to pay tuition at his university. He thinks the best investment that anyone can make is in education, expanding the mind through study. He is therefore applying for a student loan so that he can finish the last two and a half years of his program.
Yojanan's ambition is to run his own business and achieve success using the knowledge and experience his gaining at the university.
Yojanan is very grateful to God and the people who, out of the goodness of their hearts, decide to help others by providing them the opportunity to make their lives better.
