After the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) disapproved him to further his tertiary studies, Tshepo Mapheto, was forced to establish his own cleaning company to fund his own study fees.
Tshepo established Noko Hygienic Masters (NHM) which offers household cleaning, industrial cleaning and commercial cleaning.
He disclosed that he was temporary stressed after he discovered that the NSFAS has rejected to fund his studies, but instead of giving up, he was forced to come up with an alternative strategy to ensure he continues with his mission to study and that is how NHM was formed.
“Lucky enough I grew up as that child who liked to clean the house, doing laundry and ironing for everyone at home, at that time I was doing it because I loved to but when time went on, I realized that I can also do this for a living. So I didn’t form something that I was familiar with, this is my thing,” he teased.
Tshepo said it was not easy for people to trust his service as he was new in the industry but as time went on people started to give him services.
“Our vision as NHM is to be the best hygienic company to our people where they can find the best hygienic solution for all hygienic problems in their spaces”.
“NHM aims to provide hygienic solutions to its people and also treat them with respect and honesty at all time. We vow to serve them to the best of our ability,” he said.
He said he has not yet reached his target as he is still at the crawling stage of business but targeting to become a big cleaning company that has a production section which produces all cleaning products.
Speaking of challenges he said it is not easy running a cleaning company in rural areas.
“Unemployment is rising every day, again competion is too high, if you don’t have the right equipment, chances of getting a cleaning project or job are very low,” he concluded.
