Mom of 1 has a spaza business and sells sauces

Briefly News’ Women Empowerment Editor has been following Nelisiwe’s journey, with the young lady grinding hard by selling sauces in a wheelbarrow and on a bicycle, despite people occasionally mocking her.

Speaking about her latest business endeavor, the parent notes that the spaza shop is another form of income for her and she knew what her end goal was:

“2023 is personal. Don't laugh at me when you see me on the streets trying out all I can. I need to hustle to support my dreams and their dreams. We no longer care [about the opinions of others]. Pride won't take us anywhere. I'm still a girl with many dreams. The mind of a millionaire never rests.”
