John's story

My name is John, I am the last born in a family of six and from a single parent family. My mother, who I live, with runs a small scale retail business. I chose to study Bachelor of Information Technology at Strathmore because the institution is best ranked in Kenya for both academic and extracurricular activities. It is the best place to nurture my football talent as the university was ready to accommodate me in its sports scholarship program. I am a third year student. I am requesting a laptop loan from Kiva as this will help me in my fourth year project. With a laptop, it will be very convenient and effective to do my researches in the field of technology. I would like to be a reliable and resourceful person in the future. After my graduation it is my dream to start up a firm in the technology field where people can acquire information, software, computers, laptops and other IT equipment and materials. It is also my dream to start up a sports academy where kids will develop and nurture their God-given talents. Kindly consider my humble request. Thanks in advance.
