Ruth Kerubo's story

Ruth is a student at Strathmore. This is her story. My name is Ruth, a 3rd born in a a family of 5 children. I come from Kisii county. My mother works as a procurement assistant officer while my father is deceased. Coming from a single parented household, my mother finds it so hard to pay our school fees but has managed to see me through high school with the little money that she earns and a bit of help from friends and relatives. I have applied for the Kiva loan for assistance since my mother can’t afford to pay for the fees and I would like to pursue my degree in Bachelor of Commerce at Strathmore University. Am so thankful and sincerely feel grateful for the Kiva lenders for considering me and believing in my abilities. Once I get the quality education, I would like to give back to society by helping other needy children to pursue their education and also helping my family members. I commit to paying back the loan fully and comply with the terms and conditions governing Kiva Loan
