Patrick Weru's story
My name is Patrick and I'm from Karatina, Nyeri County. After I lost both of my parents, my family faced a lot of difficulties in the struggle to provide for my studies. Luckily, I was able to go through my secondary life through the help of bursaries and my deceased father's pension. I am sending my humble request to Kiva lenders, requesting them for their support to help me pursue my university degree without any school-fee difficulties. My main aim in society is to be one of the great men who will lead the rest of the people to building up an economically stable country. Taking a business course at Strathmore is geared toward my aim of building an economically stable society. I studied business for four years in high school. I was taught good leadership and its importance in entrepreneurial activities. After completing my studies, I will work hard to be a good entrepreneur. Besides seeking employment, I will struggle to come up with a business plan that will help me put up my own business activity. The main aims of putting up my business are to create employment to provide opportunities for society, to make good use of available resources, and to make profit to bring positive and sustainable change to Africa and the world.
