On Wednesday 9 September, almost a year after applying for assistance, 118 local small business owners received a donation tools of the trade from the Mkhondo Local Municipality and The Department of Small Business Development.
There were approximately 140 businesses that applied which included catering businesses, salons, agricultural businesses, event hiring businesses and many others.
These tool donations were handed out to support the small business owners of Mkhondo to be able to grow their businesses. These donations can be beneficial to the economy of our town as these businesses will now be able to create work opportunities throughout the community.
The donations included catering equipment, laptops, printers, gas stoves, gas bottles, wheelbarrows, JoJo tanks and pipes amongst other things.
We wish all the recipients the best of luck and hope these donations will allow them to develop their businesses and to become financially independent.
