A loan of $11,650 helped to pay tuition fees for an undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Commerce at Strathmore University.


Philip Kamau's story

Philip is a student at Strathmore. This is his story.
My name is Philip from Kiambu County, third born in a family of five children. We live with our mother who earns very little from her tailoring business at a kiosk near home. I had a lot of problems in paying
my secondary school fees of which I still have an owing balance. I have applied for Kiva because I look forward to pursuing my degree in Bachelor of Commerce but am not in a position to pay the tuition fees. If I get the loan, I will give my best to my course and I also commit myself to pay back the loan and to help others in future.
