Grace's story

Grace, 24 years old, was raised in Kawangware, Nairobi by her single mother along with her siblings. Her mother struggled to educate them through high school. Grace went to Kiburia Girls' High School and attained a mean grade of B- in her Kenya Certificate of secondary education.

She joined DDD in 2017 and she is a beneficiary of the work-study program. She is currently studying at Kenyatta University taking a Bachelor in Business and Commerce- Human Resource Management option and hopes to graduate in December 2021. She is requesting for a Kiva loan to help top up her remaining fees.

She looks forward to finishing her studies and being a better person in society as well as achieving her career goals.
