Thabang's story

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

My name is Thabang and I am from Soweto on the outskirts of Johannesburg. I have spent most of my schooling career in Mpumalanga and returned to Soweto late in senior school. As the only person in my family who is going to university, I am responsible to ensure that I make the best of my studies at Maharishi Institute. My education plays an important role helping me achieve my personal goals. With the help of Kiva, I will be able to complete my education and be one step closer to making my dreams a reality.

I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration through Maharishi University of Management facilitated by The Maharishi Institute and hope to graduate in 2013. In my spare time I enjoy reading, watching movies and spending time with friends. After graduating, I would like to open a business to serve my community in Mpumalanga. Giving back to my community is very important to me, and with a sound education I believe that I will be able to contribute in a meaningful manner.
