Gilbert is 30 years old. He is single, and enrolled at a private, higher institution. His studies are expected to end in 2014. He has no alternative to pay for his tuition fees. He has requested a Kiva loan to pay for his tuition, since he can’t sit for exams without paying the tuition. After graduation, good opportunities are ahead of him, so he is confident he will be able to repay the loan, help the entire family, and the development of the nation, as well.
