"These KZN women own taxis, and they also own an upholstery business for taxis."

The trio's business venture started in 2019

In 2019, these intelligent women, who were part of a group for women taxi owners in Durban Central Region, saw that their traditional business was making less money. Then, when COVID-19 came and the country locked down, things got even more challenging for them financially.

Joyce Hlobo, one of the women, had an idea to change their business to make more money. She wanted them to try different things to get more income, not just from passengers.
