The Lingering Influence of a Vassar Education
After graduating with Vassar’s class of 2017, Eduardo De La Torre returned home to Houston, where he is now founder of DVG Financial, a firm that provides low-cost loans and teaches financial literacy to discharged veterans, a group particularly vulnerable to predatory lenders during the often-protracted period when they are waiting for their Veterans Affairs benefits to begin.
