Boss moves: Young man saves NSFAS money to start own business, Mzansi showers the entrepreneur with praise
In similar news, Briefly News recently reported that Tholulwazi Ta'Mlwazen Phungula had big dreams of starting his own business and creating job opportunities for his fellow South Africans. The wheels towards his goals were set in the motion in 2019 after he secured a monthly allowance from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).
In an article published by Sunday Independent, it was revealed that the 29-year-old received the funding after he registered at the Vaal University of Technology. He chose to save money and use it to start a business. Now, in 2021, he achieved his dream and owns a business that manufactures watches, named Tholulwazi Reconciliator Phungula (TRP).
Speaking to the Sunday Independent, the promising entrepreneur explained that he always wanted to start his own business and NSFAS gave him access to much-needed capital to make his first batch of watches. His first batch cost R8 000 for 100 watches.
