In this fascinating story, we are introduced to the unsung heroes of South Africa’s business world—entrepreneurs and leaders who are not just chasing profits but are making a tangible difference in their communities. From Akhona Mosiane, a truck dealership owner who broke free from the cycle of poverty through education and mentorship, to Nonkqubela Maliza of Volkswagen, who is spearheading initiatives to bring more women into the automotive sector, these are stories of resilience, innovation, and transformative impact.
Akhona Mosiane’s journey is nothing short of inspiring. She went from receiving a university bursary to owning a truck dealership in Garden Route MAN. Her story is a testament to the power of education and mentorship in changing lives and breaking the cycle of poverty. Nonkqubela Maliza, the Director of Corporate and Government Affairs at Volkswagen, sheds light on the company’s BEE Trust, which aims to diversify the supply chain by focusing on women entrepreneurs in the automotive sector.
Then we meet Sally Marengo and her son Bradwyn Trower, the dynamic duo behind KPL Die Casting. What started as a small business importing bathroom accessories has now evolved into a key player in the automotive sector. Bradwyn emphasizes the company’s unique culture, which is rooted in a love for people, and discusses the role of job creation in addressing South Africa’s unemployment problem.
Mondre Gallant, a young entrepreneur in the water business, shares his journey of growth from a single employee to a team of 12, thanks to the support from Raizcorp. His story highlights the joy and satisfaction that come from making a difference in the lives of his employees.
These compelling narratives underscore the transformative power of mentorship, funding, and corporate partnerships in fostering entrepreneurship and job creation in South Africa. They remind us that the true measure of business success goes beyond the bottom line—it’s about the positive impact on people’s lives.
