She is the only person working at home, and I am the first person to go to University and further my study and pursue my dream. I can be able to provide the same opportunity to my sister and cousins with the help from Kiva.”

What do you do in your spare time?

Kiva Loan would contribute hugely in my life and they will be part of the success am going to be.”
