I need the money to augment my school fees. The fee is actually 50,000 Naira, but I've been able to save 32,000 by working shifts, driving tricycle, working as a labourer etc.
I lost my dad about a year ago and my mom sells petty things. She really wish she could help me, but I know she's incapacitated. The proceeds from her trade hardly even is enough for feeding.
After losing my dad, and seeing that things were becoming difficult, I wrote the school authority to allow me convert from the full time program I was to a part time. My request was turned down at the first attempt. On a second attempt, it was approved even though the school rarely does this. By being on a part time program, I have been able to do menial jobs with which I have fed myself and my mom, as well as save up for my tuition. This was how I have saved 32,000 Naira out of the 50,000 Naira tuition.
If the deadline were not so close, I would still have worked my bones to raise the remaining balance.
