A loan of $450 helped to buy a laptop which will help her conduct her academic research and complete her assignments on time.

Maureen's story

My name is Maureen. I'm pursuing a Bachelor of Commerce degree at Strathmore University. I will be in my third year in July 2013. I am the second born in a family of three children. We were raised by a single mother, who is now deceased; my elder brother is the one who meets our day-to-day expenses.

As a student, a laptop will be very necessary as it will aid in doing academic research and assignments. I therefore request a Kiva loan to help me buy the laptop. The loan will be serviced by my brother.

I would be delighted to join Campus Kiva while at Strathmore University, in order to give back to Kiva and society. In the future, when I graduate and get a job, I will be delighted to join Kiva and lend to others.
