A loan of $11,675 helped to pay tuition fees for an undergraduate degree in Commerce at Strathmore University.


Jackline's story

Jackline is a prospective student applying for a loan to start her undergraduate work on a Bachelor of Commerce degree at Strathmore University. This is her story:

My name is Jackline from Nairobi. I live in a family of six, one sister, three cousins and a guardian.

I chose Strathmore university due to its high quality of education not only academically but it trains its students to be an all-round person. I hope to begin at the university in June and that is why I am applying for the loan to finance my tuition fees as my guardian can not afford them.

I wish to study Bachelor of Commerce and specialize in accounting. I wish to work in a bank as an accountant after I graduate. By doing so I hope that I will be able to support my siblings and my guardian, financially. It is also my dream that I would be able to alleviate poverty in the world by joining an organization like Campus KIVA to be able to support disadvantaged students in Kenya.
