My name is Michael gichure, a former student of kikuyu day school and muguga polytechnic, I managed to join Eldoret moi university and am in my last year hopping to graduate with a bachelors degree in information technology, I have had alot of struggle as i try to realie my future life and dreams.Education fee is very high in the university and my parents have tried all they can to atleast get me to this point of finaliing my education,I have also been relying on educational loans from HELB to pay for my fees and surport from my church back at home.
I also have been into side hustle jobs like cyber attendant, office cleaner just to raise some cash to sustain my stay in school, I was at least last year elected as school team leader and from this i got some cash for any event organised in the school.
Am a school leader in charge of activities and events in the school this puts me in a small basic pay of 21,000 kenya shillings, i try my best to divide the amount to cater for basic needs and pay part of school fees.
Am enriched with Information technology skills and i do install softwares to fellow students on my part time this amount caters for unpredicted raising expenses and exam fees, From this side hustling i have managed to be in school and do all the reguired exams, Now that am almost clearing i opt to start a small cyber cafe within the school vicinity so to tackle the hardships of life after school before i get a better source of employment.
Technology is fast pacing in my country i found the need to do this course and be part of the few technology graduates from my community,
given the loan of 60 us dollars After deductions i will top up to 160 us dollars ane use it to clear fee for this semister, I have already paid 440 us dollars with surport from my parents and the total amount is 600 us dollars, with this loan i will clear the fees and attend to my classes in full without skipping or fear of missing exams.
