A loan of $2,050 helped to pay for one year of tuition and basic expenses at the Maharishi Institute.

Pakiso's story

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

My name is Pakiso. I am 24 years old and currently pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration through Maharishi University of Management facilitated by The Maharishi Institute. I was born and raised in a single-parent family and my mother is unemployed. I am the first to go to university in my family while my brother is the single breadwinner.

Growing my knowledge and skill base is an important part of opening opportunities for myself. After graduation, I hope to start my own construction company and get involved in community development projects. This Kiva loan is an important part of my education process, as it is not easy for a young black South African to reach university level.
