Banele's story

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

My name is Banele and I am 21 years old. I enjoy reading, writing, travelling and motor sport. Currently, I am studying towards a Bachelor of Business Administration at the Maharishi Institute. I am the youngest in a family of four and we come from De Deur region of Mid-Vaal. My family are very loving, hardworking people and we value education and dedication. My parents are patient and honest people whom I respect very much because of everything they have done for me and my siblings.

After graduation, I plan to expand my recycling company. I'd also like to help educate youth and to invest in programs for disadvantaged young people. I want to motivate students at Maharishi Institute to reach and achieve their goals and help Maharishi to become the greatest university in South Africa. Ultimately, I want to be independent and strive for greatness. I plan to graduate in 2014 and believe education is an important tool in achieving my dreams.
