My names are Binale, I am 28 years old self employed. I live in Nairobi Kenya where I went to University. During the four years of school, I witnessed a lot of struggles with finances in most of the students. The issue at hand is in the fact that most of these student come from homes that are more than 300 km from school and have to stay in hostels. However, the hostel rooms are never enough and most of the student have an idea about how to get money but don't have the time or capital to even jump start it. Some of the idea are so amazing that they could be bought by anyone with interest due to their potential for profitability. I am motivated to empower this generation and through that have a mentoring program specifically designed for the University students to teach them on learning to survive while thriving in education, social, and professional circles.
