My name is Porter and I am a student at the Maharishi Institute. I am 24 years old and currently studying towards my Bachelor of Business Administration through Maharishi University of Management facilitated by The Maharishi Institute. Education is important to me because it encourages me to think about life in a creative and innovative way. Sharing my experiences and what I have learned is part of my life. I believe that through sharing we grow in our minds and hearts.
The Kiva loan will help me to complete my education and continue sharing in a meaningful way.
In my spare time I enjoy meeting new people, cooking, baking, yoga and meditation. My family and I are Christians and regularly attend church. My mother has been able to educate two of my brothers and continues to support me. Obtaining funding from Kiva will help me ease her burden.
More information about this loan
This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.
Maharishi students repay their loans with work-study wages while attending school. However, due to the unpredictable nature of their work-study schedules, they may not be able to make regular repayments. In these instances, Maharishi Institute provides an advance that is deducted from students' future wages. This gives student borrowers more flexibility in meeting their loan repayment obligations while they are still in school.
Important InformationThe Maharishi Education for Invincibility Trust (MEIT) extends educational opportunities to poor and historically excluded students in South Africa. By combining distance and computer learning with practical experience, the institute equips students with access to the skills and training they need to compete in tough job markets and build bright futures. Kiva funding will help students pay for tuition and other basic expenses so they can study and thrive.
Maharishi students take out loans for each year of tuition separately on Kiva. Each concurrent loan's repayment period begins after the previous load has been fully repaid.
