A loan of $600 helped to buy a laptop to access E-learning and acquire IT skills.


Anne Keru's story

My name is Anne. I am the first born in a family of three. I am in year two, currently pursuing a 4-year undergraduate degree in Actuarial Science and doing accounting at the same time. It has been a dream come true to be in Strathmore University because of its quality education and good brand name. This has been possible through a 40% Strathmore University scholarship. My grades have been good: scoring an average of an A in my first year.

I need a loan in order to purchase a laptop. I will ensure that I repay every month, so that other people can get access to Kiva loans in the future. The laptop loan will enable me to carry out extensive research, to do my assignments, and access notes in Strathmore's E-learning system. The laptop loan will also enable me to learn new skills online, like programming and Microsoft Excel, which I will learn by myself. This will enable me to be a better student and, therefore, realize my dream of being an actuary.

I am a hardworking, self-motivated and ambitious person with the desire for knowledge. I also love charity work, and I have participated in charitable activities like mentoring girls in Kitui, Kenya, and working in a children’s home. I intend to participate in the spirit of Kiva after I finish my studies, in order to make people’s dreams come true like mine.
