Paying on student loans can span generations as borrowers figure out the best way to approach their payments. 

In the third episode of "The cost of opportunity," Katelyn Ferral sits down with Araceli Esparza, a first generation college student and a child of Mexican immigrants. Esparza grew up in Madison and has advanced degrees from universities in Minnesota. She is still paying on her student loans as her son went to college this fall. She talks about how she has handled her loan payments while still trying to do work she finds fulfilling.
