A loan of $2,075 helped to pay for tuition fees and living expenses at the Maharishi Institute.

Nokuthula's story

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

My name is Nokuthula, I am 27 years old and I'm pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration in Johannesburg. I live with my grandparents in a small township called Leandra, in the province of Mpumalanga. My mother is unemployed and does not live with us, so my grandparents have raised me on their pension fund. In my spare time, I like listening to music and volunteering at community halls, helping to organise youth activities.

My hope is to find a job that is going to help me utilise the skills that I have acquired in school; a job that is going to challenge me so that I can grow as a person. In the long run, I would like to contribute as much as possible to the growth of the Maharishi Institute. I want to open a Transcendental Meditation Centre in my community, and also run career orientation sessions. I believe getting a loan from Kiva will help me a lot with my tuition fees, as no one in my family can afford to help me with that.
