Thiselani's story

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

My name is Thiselani and I will be graduating in 2013 with a Bachelor of Business Administration through Maharishi University of Management facilitated by The Maharishi Institute. My long-term goal is to become an entrepreneur and eventually open an orphanage in my community. I believe that with education, achieving my goals and reaching my dreams becomes a possibility. Education gives me knowledge and builds my opinions and behavior.

I live in a family of five, and we are from Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga. My mother is unemployed and my father is a bar man at a game lodge. I am the first to enter university in my family, and a Kiva loan is important for me in order to cover my needs and to ease the financial burden on my family.
