“Seeing myself about to graduate, it is an important milestone not only for me but also for my family. I will be the first person in my family to hold a university degree and therefore blazing a trail into higher education for the next generation in my family. This couldn’t be possible if it was not through the Chancen Income Share Agreement. The ISA reduced tremendously the weight on my mother’s responsibilities. She has been only paying 30% whereas the rest of the tuition fees were covered by Chancen.”
