Course gives entrepreneurs a boost

SMALL business development in Jeffreys Bay received a boost recently when 34 entrepreneurs from Tokyo Sexwale township were trained in basic business skills.
The training was organised by the Small Enterprises Development Association (Seda) and the Kouga Municipality.
Congratulating the entrepreneurs, ward councillor Timothy Meleni said:
“As a ward, we are serious about beating unemployment. To achieve this it is important that we stand together and support our local entrepreneurs so that they can start or grow their own businesses.”
Renyl Witbooi, who attended the training, said the course had been very practical and that she had learnt valuable lessons, especially about financial planning for her business.
“I make earrings, and it is my dream to one day have my own business.
“What I learnt at this course will help me achieve my dream,” she said.
Reggie Bezuidenhout, who also attended the course, said he too hoped to have his own business one day, and that the training provided him with a good foundation.
“My only regret was that there weren’t more people at the course because it gave one a really good overview of what it takes to start, and build a business. Those of us who had the privilege of being there, look forward to helping others in our community,” he said.
Those who completed the course received their certificates last Wednesday.
