I hear you guys - she has to help, if she doesn''t then who will....but HOW? She literally has no money. She is already helping where she can and she has nothing left. She is willing but she has no means. The brother must just seat this semester out and hope for the loan he applied for to come through next semester. And he must look for a job as a waiter in the meantime to also help himself.

Thanks Mary, I wish I could , im literarly unable to but everybody expect me finanace his studies and most unfortunately he applied late for NSFAS. mayb its the timing. i had to sacrifice even for my nephew coz Pretoria schools are expensive. im at peace with the fact that i dont have money to take him to varsity but my family thinks im refusing to help out. how do i tell them or must i show them my payslip? mayb they will get it.

Everything in life happens for a reason, like Zee say it will pay off in the long run, what if you brother becomes a very important person in this world, then you have done something good.

There is Nasfas and student loans that you can assist your brother to get, for his education. Try the best you can for him to have a good education, otherwise he will always be your burden, come back and back for help.

If he is serious to study. Do what you can. the other small ones, do the best your can Sisi. It willl pay-off in the long-run.

Duty? maybe not.
Right thing to do? Yes
if you dont? You wont forgive yourself and he will always come begging something from you.
