Growing the econ­omy

CityPress - - News -

No­qikelela Nokwe (53) is one of the mem­bers of the board of di­rec­tors that runs Fundirite.

Now in her sec­ond year with the project, Nokwe is en­joy­ing hav­ing cash in her pocket, and be­lieves that her hard work is build­ing the re­gional and na­tional econ­omy.

“We are con­tribut­ing to South Africa and to its econ­omy,” says the mother of six.

“It is some­thing to be proud of. What we are pro­duc­ing here is go­ing all over South Africa and over­seas.

“We have taken land that was not be­ing used and turned it into some­thing that is very pro­duc­tive.”
