Andrea's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to pay tuition fees for an undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Science in Informatics and Computer Science at Strathmore University.
My name is Andrea aged 18 years, I wish to join Strathmore University to pursue my dream course Bachelor Of Science Informatics and Computer Science. My mom worked as a matron in my former primary school to help cater for my fees. My father, on the other hand, worked as a casual labourer in order to cater for other family needs. I finished my primary education with great marks which enabled me to be enrolled to high school. In high school fees were catered for by the county bursaries, with my father also contributing some funds while my mother continued to work to cater for my siblings’ school fees. In high school, I was in athletics and taekwondo as my co- curricular activities. My aim is to one day be a Software Engineer or an Intelligent Systems Designer when I complete my course. This will enable me to design and implement software using computers to offer solutions through technology. I like researching over the internet on things technological and I know Strathmore will be ideal for research advancements, I love listening to music, during my free time. KIVA loan will help me to study without financial worries and help me in achieve my dream. My promise is to do my best in my academic life and be a success in the future and I promise to repay soon after completing my course. I will be very grateful if you accept my request thank you KIVA
