A loan of $5,025 helped to achieve his dream of being the first professional in his family.


Eross Joel's story

Eross is the eldest of three siblings and will be the first in his family to become a professional by graduating from university. Eross' parents are separated; his mother is a seamstress and the only source of income for the family as Eross' father does not contribute anything. Eross mother works very hard to support the household. Eross greatly values the efforts that his mother makes in order for him to finish his degree in industrial management. Eross is starting his second year and tuition fees have increased two-fold. He can therefore no longer continue to study as his mother cannot pay this amount of money, and Eross does not currently have the support of Kiva lenders. Eross needs lower tuition fees in order to continue studying. This will be feasible if Eross is able to benefit from the support of Kiva lenders. Eross wants to thank lenders for understanding his financial situation and his loan application. Eross wants to continue with his degree and do a paid internship while studying. This will help his mother with the costs of his education, and will help Eross' mother to pay for the costs of medication and treatment for Eross' younger brother, who has respiratory difficulties. In the near future Eross would like to gain experience working for a large business. He dreams of having his own business.
