Erick's story

Erick is a student applying for a loan to pay for his tuition fees to help finish his undergraduate degree at Strathmore University and this is his story:

I am Erick, the fourth born child in a family of five children. My mother is a primary school teacher and my father lost his job in April, 2011. All my siblings are also in university levels, and they also need a lot of financial support from my parents who are low income earners. This makes it hard for them to manage providing for all our education needs. This has made me fear for my future; thus, making me think of ways of completing my studies.

I am currently in my second year undertaking a degree in Bachelor in Business Information Technology at Strathmore University. I chose Strathmore University because it moulds students to be responsible, hardworking, God-fearing and highly motivated professionals. Its academic standards are also much higher than other universities in Kenya.

I have dreams of becoming an IT expert in web and mobile programming to put into practice what I have learnt in school. I also want to help in improving and developing the technology world and to aid in moving Kenya into technological standards that will help curb poverty and other social problems.
