One single momma from Hammanskraal knows what she wants in life and doesn’t mind grinding hard for herself and her daughter.
Nelisiwe Khumo Mphamo started a business in 2018, selling sauces, lingerie, snack packs, and more under the brand name ‘Diamond’. She used her Sassa grant money to start the enterprise.
The young hustler was honoured in a post on the Kasi Economy Facebook page that commended the entrepreneur for marketing her sauces from door to door using a simple wheelbarrow because of a lack of transport.

The supermom noted that hard work and keeping her eyes on the prize were key to her success and growth as an entrepreneur:
“The secret is to manifest what you desire and believe that what you want, you already have. I believe that as long as you are good at something, you shouldn't wait to go out there and give people your products.”
In addition to marketing products, Nelisiwe is also a tour guide and is in the recycling business.
The multitalented lady makes tomato, chilli, and barbeque sauces and explains that she manufactures the products herself:
“I did consumer studies at school. I know how to mix spices and how the production works.”
The strong entrepreneur explains that her dad was a wonderful motivator because of the support he showered her with:
“When I was a little girl, my father used to tell me how beautiful I was. He doesn't address me as a pending millionaire but as a millionaire. As a child, what I spoke about became the idea of my dreams.
“[I want to open] at least eight businesses so that I can create jobs. I'm not good at working at for someone, but if I could help other families, I would be at my happiest.”
Nelisiwe is working hard to make her deepest desires a reality:
“I'm just a girl who has a dream about being a millionaire.”
