Joel's story

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

My family consists of four members: two sisters, my father and me. My mother passed on in 1996. My biggest challenge has been educating myself since my father is poor and; hence, raising school fees all the way through has not been easy. Thank God I have always gotten well-wishers on my way! I have always had a goal to reach the peak of education and getting a degree doesn't mean that I will have done all I want to do.

I chose Strathmore University since it is one of the best universities in the world and top in Africa, and it produces the best students in finance and accounting fields. I am applying for this loan to enable me to purchase a laptop which will help me with my assignments, studying and doing research. In fact, it will be a long-term asset in my accounting career. I want to advance my career in accounting and finance and be one of the best.

I believe that life is always hard work and for someone to succeed, he should be patient, trust God and be persistent.
