A loan of $5,625 helped to pay tuition fees in order to complete an undergraduate course in Bachelor of Business Science in Actuarial Science.

Reza's story

My name is Reza and I come from a family of two siblings: a brother in high school and a younger sister in kindergarten. Currently I am in my third year, studying BBS-Actuarial Science in the School of Finance and Applied Economics at Strathmore University. I am pursuing a career as an actuary and my grades so far have been good. I am applying for the Kiva loan so as to complete the two remaining years of my Bachelor's degree.

My parents are struggling to meet the fees for me and my brother in secondary school because they both don't earn enough, but would like to see me get a quality university education given by Strathmore.

The Kiva loan repayment is friendly because it spreads the repayment out over a longer period, compared to the three installments required by Strathmore University for every year of a degree. The KIVA loan would assist me greatly in paying my tuition fees over the remaining academic years of my course. This would enable me to study hard and go through the course without missing any classes or exams because of unpaid fees. I appreciate Strathmore University for all the assistance I have received in applying for this loan.

I commit to paying back the loan on time and to give back in the future to other needy cases so as to continue the spirit initiated by Kiva.
