Freddie's story

Freddie is applying for a loan to support his studies for a year at the MERU. This is his story:

Hi, my name is Freddie, I'm 24 and am from Sebokeng in Johannesburg. I'm studying at the Maharishi Institute for a Bachelor's Degree in Management, specialising in Nature Conservation and Sustainable Living.

In Sebokeng, I live with both parents and one brother. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, listening to music and travelling.

I plan to graduate by 2014. After becoming financially stable, I want to give back to the community. My long term goals are to be a business owner and to help those in need.
