Moses's story

Moses is a student at Strathmore. This is his story. My name is Moses, a second born in a family of five. I am resident of Uasin Gishu County; where my parents live. My father and my mother practice small scale farming with one acre; planting farm and three cattle (one cow and 2 heifers). When I showed my academic capability my parents were assisted with well wishers and managed to get bursaries that enabled to finance my school fees. While at secondary school, I portrayed leadership skills where I was a church captain for 3 years and hockey assistant captain where we lead our team to play at provincial level thrice. I believe given an opportunity at Strathmore will manage to do better in such similar fields. It has always been my dream to be an Actuary and help to foster development in our society, by enabling companies and diverse institutions in our growing economy to realise their strengths and weaknesses and thus explore their opportunities and curb their risks. I have wished to pursue my degree in Actuarial Science at Strathmore University but my family financial status does not allow me hence leaving me with KIVA as my only option. I am so pleased about KIVA and I thank the founders. After my studies I will a lender via KIVA.
