Bongani's story

Bongani is applying for a loan to support his studies at the Maharishi Institute. This is his story:

My name is Bongani and I am studying towards a Bachelor of Business Administration through Maharishi University of Management facilitated by The Maharishi Institute. I am 23 years old and hope to graduate in 2013 with my degree. My education is an important part of my knowledge growth and helps me view the world in a different way. It influences my decisions and empowers me to improve my situation in order to help others. After graduating, I hope to mentor young teenagers and motivate them to seriously pursue their studies. I have noticed that young people in South Africa lack career guidance and I hope to bring change to this.

After graduating I would like to study further, get my MBA and start my own business. The reason I am requesting a Kiva loan is for financial assistance with my degree. My financial background is not that consistent, and with the help of this loan I know my education will go further. After completing my education, I hope to support young children who can't access education due to financial troubles.
