Porter's story

Porter is applying for a loan to support her studies at the Maharishi Institute. This is her story: My name is Porter and I am a student at the Maharishi Institute. I am 24 years old and currently studying towards my Bachelor of Business Administration through Maharishi University of Management facilitated by The Maharishi Institute. Education is important to me because it encourages me to think about life in a creative and innovative way. Sharing my experiences and what I have learned is part of my life. I believe that through sharing we grow in our minds and hearts. The Kiva loan will help me to complete my education and continue sharing in a meaningful way. In my spare time I enjoy meeting new people, cooking, baking, yoga and meditation. My family and I are Christians and regularly attend church. My mother has been able to educate two of my brothers and continues to support me. Obtaining funding from Kiva will help me ease her burden.
