Victoria's story

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

My name is Victoria and I am a 26-year-old student studying towards a Bachelor of Business Administration through Maharishi University of Management facilitated by The Maharishi Institute. I hope to graduate in 2013. Both my parents are unemployed, which makes getting an education a difficult task. I am one in a family of seven, and my dream is to support my family financially.

My education at Maharishi Institute is an important part of my growth. In order to reach my dreams of supporting my family, I have realised that gaining knowledge is one step towards financial freedom. Working towards my goal has inspired me to aim for an MBA in the future, and the Kiva loan is essential in realising that goal. Without the loan from Kiva, my studies will be threatened as a result of my family circumstances, strained financial situation and lack of means to support myself.
