Daniel's story

Daniel is a student taking a Bachelor of Commerce degree at Strathmore University and this is his story:

I am Daniel, the firstborn in a family of four that includes myself, my sibling in primary school, and my two parents who are working in different professions. I come from a family with a business background and have a great interest in ethical business. Strathmore University integrates these in a single package and provides the opportunity to learn a curriculum with a difference in my country. I am currently in second year pursuing a Bachelor of Commerce degree with an interest in finance and management science.

I am applying for a loan to purchase a laptop that will be essential for my studies and convenient for data keeping for my future business undertakings. The laptop will be an essential part of my studies, both for the regular research that must be conducted and by providing access to the coursework.

I have a great interest in entrepreneurial activities. I have a dream of running a successful self-sustaining animal and bird farm which will create an avenue to fulfill my interest in real estate. I hope to attain financial stability by my late twenties. My philosophy is that I may be a slow walker but I never walk backward. I am a principled person guided by my own goals and objectives in life. I am adventurous and an achiever with a "go-getter” attitude. I love challenges in my day-to-day life. I am of the opinion that, if I want a better tomorrow, then I must start working on it today and now.
