For many beneficiaries, an approach to SANZAF often serves as a catalyst for achieving their entrepreneurial dreams. For Port-Elizabeth-based Amina, this came in the form of her own cleaning services.
A single mother of four, Amina was unemployed and struggling financially to meet the needs of her family. Employment opportunities were also proving hard to come by. Amina decided to take proactive steps to resolve her financial burden by drafting a business plan for her own cleaning services company, despite lacking the funds needed to get the business up and running.
She approached SANZAF’s Port Elizabeth offices and was made aware of a short business course she could attend. She immediately agreed to be enrolled in the programme.
During the course, Amina was assisted with developing her business plan and was given the motivation needed to take the initiative and start up her company.
“It’s really more than I bargained for. I was grateful to Allah (swt) that a very friendly lady named Farah assisted me at business classes and motivate me to empower myself. It was really an awesome experience,” she stated.
After the completion of the short business course, Amina was provided with a certificate to prove her qualifications. SANZAF then assisted Amina with the necessary funding needed to start-up of her business.
Amina is now the proud owner of her own cleaning services, and has described the feeling as “a dream come true.”
