Jotham Omondi's story

I am Jotham from Yala, a town along the Kisumu –Busia highway.I come from a needy family headed by a grandmother who is a peasant farmer after both of my parents died when I was still at a tender age as well as my twin brother who also passed away earlier than expected making me to remain a single child in the family to date.

I hail from a society where education is highly degraded and traditions set in the forefront. This is as characterized by early marriages of girls at premature ages as well as boys due to increased intake of drug substances resulting to their education being held at stake.

This is very disheartening and sends a lot of concerns to me as the society continue to derail as young people succumb from the vices. Coming from such a society gives me power and strength that I will prove my critics wrong and give back to the society. I am turning to KIVA for a loan that will enable me to successfully acquire university education at Strathmore university. Upon completion of my education I strongly believe in giving back to the society by providing moral authority and setting up institutions that will be able to curb such vices amicably and streamline the society.

I trust that KIVA will make my ambitions come true and will comply with the terms and conditions governing the KIVA loan for the betterment of the institution at large.
