Quinter's story

Quinter is a student applying for a loan to pay for her tuition fees to help finish her undergraduate degree at Strathmore University. This is her story:

I am Quinter, aged 18 years, from Kenya. I come from a family of 8, I am the fourth born, my three siblings have only high school qualification,one is in high school and the youngest is in primary school. I am the only one pursuing university education. I am in my first year taking an undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Business Information Technology at Strathmore University.

I completed high school with the help of well-wishers in 2010. My excellent performance and improved skills in basketball led me to be called for by the UNICEF Talent Academy where I was exposed to many clubs including an outstanding, high-level performing institution that is Strathmore University. I applied for a sports scholarship, and luckily I was awarded 75% of my tuition fees. My father is having difficulties financing the remaining 25% of the tuition fee.He is not financially stable, and besides that my small business cannot help me raise this money in a stable way.

At the end of my degree course I dream of being an IT specialist, majoring on networking. Besides that, I wish to have a chance to get my basketball to a professional level, because it has been the virtue of my assistance to my academic progression and it’s my motivator in my struggles.

Through the Strathmore media I came to know about KIVA and felt the urge to apply for the 4 year maximum tuition loan to help me out of my struggle to raise the 25% of my fees. With that at hand, I had to consider the thought to seek this loan to help see my dream come true.
