Tatiana's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for tuition fees at Strathmore University.

Tatiana's story

My name is Tatiana and I have been admitted to pursue a Bachelors of Commerce degree. Living in a coastal area, my father has been introducing me to public speaking. I have spoken to some youth on "Resisting Negative Peer Pressure" and recently to a candidate class about "Managing Time and Avoiding Anxiety as Exams Approach" and I really enjoyed it. The financial challenge to completing my education is like a pond with hungry crocodiles between me and my dream. I am hoping for a bridge to connect my mountain of potential and my dream.

I want to pursue this up to doctorate level and share the concept of conscious spending to people in a simple, palatable way. When I accompany my father on entrepreneurship talks to local traders, I observe that many seem to get lost when issues of accounts and keeping business records are discussed. With this group in mind, I intend to offer simple finance management tools to them.

Once the challenge of financing my education is overcome, I will work intensely on my coursework so that I can excel in every academic aspect. I also intend to pursue extracurricular activities since I understand the importance of well-rounded excellence and I want to be useful to everyone in the commercial world: the village shopkeeper, the schoolteacher, the college student, and other research fellows at the doctorate school. I want to be a rare gem to the employer that finds me. I want to make them enjoy paying me and that should enable me to effectively repay this loan.
