A loan of $725 helped to purchase a laptop that will assist in his Information Technology studies so he can realize his dream of becoming a programming guru and entrepreneur.


Neville's story

Neville is a student applying for a loan to purchase a laptop to assist in his studies at Strathmore University and this is his story:

I live in a family of six siblings. I am in year one of my Bachelor of Commerce degree. I have a strong passion for IT and programming, which I am studying on my own.

Strathmore University undoubtedly offers the best quality in Kenya's higher education. That is why it is my university of choice. In many ways, this laptop loan will aid in the realization of my dream to become an established programmer and IT guru. Furthermore, it will see me through to contribute to the advancement of education in IT and probably create jobs for the many jobless Kenyans.

I am self-driven and highly motivated with big dreams and great passion for learning and creating new things. I also love charity work and – God willing, if my dreams come true – I would like to be a major contributor to Kiva loans to extend the help offered to the needy and less fortunate around the world. Owning a laptop will be a milestone towards achieving this dream.
