Paul's story

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

My name is Paul and I am studying for my Bachelor of Business Administration at the Maharishi Institute in Johannesburg. I live with my parents and six of my sisters in Bertrams, east of Johannesburg. In my family there are currently two people at work, my brother and my father. My mother volunteers at a hospital.

Two of my siblings were able to attend university, but three others were not able to do so because of financial problems. My dream after graduating is to be a successful businessman; I would like to establish my own profitable recycling company, a clothing company, or produce solar panels. I want to do something that will make my family and the Maharishi Institute proud.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, watching TV, and skateboarding with my friends. I look forward to receiving the support of this Kiva loan because it will help me achieve my educational goals, and equip me with what I need to make my dreams come true.
