Brenda Mwendwa's story

Brenda Mwendwa is a student at Strathmore. This is her story.
My name is Brenda Mwendwa. I would like to undertake a Bachelor of Business Science in Financial Economics in Strathmore University. I have one elder sibling, a sister. I applied for the course at Strathmore University because of its good quality of educational services and facilities. Upon graduation, I would like to become a financial analyst in a bank. This will enable me to give investment suggestions to clients and evaluate the economic outlook on different sectors and industries.
The reason why I applied for Kiva loan is because my parents could not be able to afford the fees for the whole course. My sister also depends on my parents for financial support though she is self-employed. The Kiva loan will also ensure that I study well without any financial setbacks. In studying the course at the university, I am planning to join the Campus Kiva Club that will help me build my professional skills and participate in community service projects. I also plan to become a lender in the Kiva Organisation once I get a stable job so that I can help other needy students to acquire financial support and achieve their dreams.
