Explorer of the Day: ‘I Have Been Able To Pay My Tuition Using My Business’ - Kivumbi Hassan
Kivumbi Hassan was in senior six when he started saving to achieve his dream of owning a business. By the time he joined University he was already living his dream.
It's generally very difficult for one to raise his or her own tuition at the University level, especially if you're young.
However, Kivumbi, a law student at Kampala International University, is not finding it so difficult. Infact, he says it's "easy" to pay his tuition.
The law student credits his mobile money business in Nsambya for making it possible. He explains that his secret is good customer service, as he makes it a point to leave every client satisfied.
In order to balance time for both class and business, Kivumbi opted for the evening classes at KIU which start at 4 P.M. in the evening.
“When I am not around I usually get someone trustworthy to run the business for me,” he says.
On completion of his degree, Hassan plans to start up a law firm with his classmates.
“I advise young people to start saving because every penny counts and it makes a huge difference in your plans. It’s never too late,” he concluded.
