Ronnie Alex's story

Ronnie is a student at Strathmore. This is his story.
My name is Ronnie and I come from Mombasa; the Kenyan coastal region. I am the 4th born in a family of 5 children. My mother works as a primary school teacher. I am interested in the loan to assist me pay for my school fees at Strathmore University where I got admission to do a degree in commerce(BCOM).
After University I want to be a financial consultant in one of the big companies in Kenya or if offered a chance, outside the country. In the near future I hope to be leading in the fore front in the fight against poverty by first eradicating it in my family and being a role model to other people of my age by showing them that being born poor does not necessarily mean living in poverty for the rest of your life.
At Strathmore I will join the Rugby team and through Rugby promote KIVA spirit.
