Foundation for women entrepreneurs established

MOTETEMA – Sekhukhune Development Agency (SDA) officially launched its Womandla Entrepreneurship Pavilion (WEP) on women in the manufacturing sector at the Mamokgalake Chuene Hall of Sekhukhune TVET College’s CS Barlow campus in Motetema outside Groblersdal.

According to Maureen Ntshudisane, SDA Chairperson, they aptly named the event as a ‘pavilion’ because the latter only meant a stage but most importantly, a less intimidating kind of platform as it allowed every woman, from any developmental stage, to come out and showcase their ‘Womandla’ effect.

Ntshudisane said the initiative further effectively allowed women to celebrate their sisterly power through showcasing their work, share success stories and their journey in entrepreneurship.

“This was not a lonely women affair as the SDM Executive Mayor, Stanely Ramaila, showed his support by interacting with each and every participant including exhibitors,” said Ntshudisane.

Executive Mayor Ramaila graced the initiative as accomplice of the SDM First Lady, Rosa Ramaila. Small Enterprise Development Agency (SEDA) representative, Shiela Mphaphathe, detailed their services and how women in the district, from any level, could join the wagon of ‘doing business by just having an idea and an interest to start.

“All we say to you is ‘come as you are, visit any of our branches and you will not walk out of our door being the same person. You will walk out of our door an enabled and empowered woman in business. We have invited women who have turned into entrepreneurs to share their stories,” said Mphaphathe.

Bearing testimony to SEDA’s support to women in the district, Setsong Tea Director, Nondumiso Phaahla, said her world renowned indigenous tea brand could not have seen the light of day without SEDA.
