Stella Andia's story

Stella is a student at Strathmore. This is her story.
I am Stella from in Bungoma County. I come from a family of three and I am the second born. My father works with Water Resources Management Authority while my mother teaches at Teachers Training College. Payment of school fees has been challenging for us with my parents struggling to make ends meet despite my father's sick condition which has proven costly too. I aspire to be a professional actuary and a key volunteer in community projects. I would like to engage in other projects like KIVA with an aim of reducing dependency ratio in the society. I would like to see my dreams become a reality and therefore I requested KIVA lenders to grant me financial aid through a loan to be able to study Actuarial Science at Strathmore University, engage in community service projects and acquire skills in profession building. This loan will enable me fulfill my dreams. I pledge to comply with KIVA terms and conditions and on completion of my studies pay back the loan and be able to aid my family and other needy people in the society.
