he­li­copter pi­lot Om­phile and his fi­ancée have de­cided to post­pone their wed­ding un­til she has found work, but Om­phile is still hop­ing to be mar­ried this year. He has enough money put aside for lobola, but is now work­ing to­wards buy­ing a home.

“I am re­ally ex­cited about buy­ing an apart­ment in Gaut­eng this year,” says Om­phile, who also wants to in­crease his monthly medium-term sav­ings by set­ting up a debit or­der into a unit trust.

Om­phile’s longer-term goal is to own a farm in North West.

“Om­phile has some big fi­nan­cial goals this year and he will have to be re­ally fo­cused on stick­ing to his bud­get to achieve them,” says his fi­nan­cial ad­viser, Pa­tience Mme­thi.
