Happy Customers

My name is Kayigana Virgile currently living in Shanghai/China. In April 2017 I was facing an impossible highly challenging task of securing admission to my sister in top East African University (Kenya & Uganda & Tanzania) with my preference being university in Kenya. I happened to get very lucky to know Mr. Allan N. Mwangi through his company SmartMind Trading Ltd. Mr. Mwangi offered me good service and I rate him high on professionalism & punctuality & updated information; I am very grateful on how he assisted me gathering application documents & submission until getting admission notice from Kenyatta University. Mr. Mwangi still assists me on daily basis whenever I need him on additional information regarding academic calendar & housing. I will definitely recommend anyone who needs similar service to not hesitate contact him & enjoy best service.
