Lwazi's story

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

Hello, I'm Lwazi, from Benoni in Johannesburg. I am studying for a Bachelor of Business Administration at the Maharishi Institute.

I stay with my Granny and my siblings, as my mother passed away in 2005. I grew up helping my Granny to sell beers at a small tavern where I live, and this has been our main income at home. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, playing and watching soccer, and watching movies with my friends.

I hope to be a businessman after I graduate in 2015, and help other children to get the opportunity that I had. My long-term goals are to own my own business, fund poor people, and open an organisation which will help students to pursue their dreams and careers. Education is the key to destroying poverty and it will help me in my life.
