Boniface Githua's story

Boniface is a student at Strathmore. This is his story.
My name is Boniface from Kiambu County. Aged nineteen years, I am the first born in a family of four. I am applying for Kiva loan which will cover my tution. The reasons why I went for the Kiva loan were: first with the loan I will able to access higher education and take I course that will enable achieve my dreams of becoming a software engineer and second it is not easy to take this course in Kenyan public universities.
If one gets a chance, the location and learning facilities can not compare with those of Strahmore University.
My mother is a casual labourer and does not even earn enough to meet the basic family expenses.
I believe that a degree in Bsc. Informatics and the skills I will get will enable me become a top software engineer. Thank you very much for giving me a chance and other needy bright students from poor backgrounds.
I will do the same in future and while at Strathmore I will work with Campus KIVA to bring positive change in the lives of others.
