- A Tshwane-based woman has inspired many of her friends by selling 1 000 units of vetkoek, or 'amagwinya', just after starting last week
- @Jade_Billions has thanked her ancestors for giving her the idea and for the support she receives from her clientele in Tshwane
- Many of her contacts on social media have been motivated and are now encouraging the young woman in her 'fatcake' hustle and wishing her growth in Tshwane
Because of the unsavoury consequences of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has left many jobless, a young woman is making it big in the small business sector.
@Jade_Billions is being seen in the streets of Tshwane where she is selling amagwinya, also called 'vetkoek' or 'fatcakes', and recently took to Twitter to inspire her followers.
The Tshwane-based young businesswoman says money loves her and she has thanked her ancestors for the guidance as she can now make ends meet.
In a caption on her buzzing Twitter page, @Jade_Billions said she only started selling the most favoured food item in Mzansi last Saturday but there is a huge difference as far as a response is concerned.
“I only started selling fatcakes last week Saturday and I've sold approximately 1 000 units. My God is working overtime actually idlozi likhona.”
“Jeez, you sold 1 000 fat cakes.”
"Since winter is approaching surely she can sell up to 3 000."
"Plain truth: There's no small business. From small beginnings, you might end up owning a business empire."
"She better be aiming that high. I see the potential... This is how it all starts, I can imagine her venturing into ama Kota or that hot plate."
“That fact that you've managed to employ yourself is a superpower! Keep going.”
“Start selling a plate of food after the morning magwinya rush.”
“And it's not even winter yet! Good going. Next, produce for scale, sell in bulk to general dealers around you. Work on your micro demand strategy!”
