"I love empowering women": Businesswoman with salon trains and inspires ladies

“I lost my job in 2020, and while I didn’t get funding to start my business, I used what I had. I initially worked as a facilitator at an organisation called Work 4 A Living.”

Businesswoman started small

Unathi notes that she started with what she had. The determined lady initially sold and marketed items she baked before moving on to start the enterprise she now has:

“I started by baking scones and muffins. Then, cake eventually expanded to decor. I first started with decor for kids’ parties, and then eventually ventured into adult decor, including weddings, and more.
"In the future, I would love to have between four and five employees, and want to expand my business."

Unathi is a typical example of determination despite circumstances. She didn’t allow her life to fall apart after losing her job. The lovely lady is successful and building up more each day.
