Blessing is a second year student at Western Hills School of Nursing, and the loan is to help pay her school fees. Prior to this loan facility, her sister was the one paying for her schooling. At a point in her education, payment of her fees was difficult, where she had to stay out of school for a month. Her chosen profession interests her because she would be financially independent to support her sister, and to help her family as well as caring for the sick in the community.

According to this applicant, her sister inspires her the most, through the care she gives to the sick. In the next five or ten years she hopes to be a senior nurse. However, without this education she cannot achieve her goal of becoming a senior nurse. Without this facility she would be at home and there seems to be no other alternative. She would like to advise borrowers around the world to settle every loan taken from the bank in order to pave the way for generations to come, especially the poor ones.
