but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for her tuition fees for a Bachelor degree in Information Technology.

Damaris's story

Damaris is now in her third year at Kenyatta University undertaking a Bachelor's degree in Information Technology.

In January 2017 she joined AWS (Amazon Web Services) and is now a certified AWS SysOps Admin. This has given her an opportunity to represent the company as a Speaker in AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas and talk about Women in Tech. DDD has given her an opportunity to unleash her potential both in school and career-wise.

Damaris needs another Kiva loan to facilitate funding of her degree at Kenyatta University. In this way, she will be able to finish her degree, get a better job, and be able to support her siblings and live a better life.

Being a lady, she is so passionate about technology. Her ambition is to work hard and be able to help other fellow youths who come from a disadvantaged background. Moreover, she wants to empower young girls to engage in ICT-related courses because, as the years go by, technology is improving for the better.
