My name is Zablon, I am 22 years old and I am studying for my Bachelor of Business Administration at the Maharishi Institute. My hobbies are singing in the church choir, reading newspapers and magazines and playing soccer. I am the first in my family to attend university. My family lives in Thokoza where my mother is a domestic worker, and my father is a taxi driver.
I plan to graduate in 2014 and after graduation, I hope to find a stable occupation in the corporate world. Someday I would like to start my own business and my dream is to assist other people, to help them to enjoy the opportunities I have been given. I'd like to get my Masters degree, become financially stable, and buy my first house.
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.
