In partnership with Umoya Community, we recently facilitated a series of Small, Medium, and Micro Enterprise (SMME) Development workshops aimed at nurturing entrepreneurial talent within the Bergrivier area. These workshops provided comprehensive training and mentorship to a cohort of 11 small businesses, equipping them with essential skills and knowledge to thrive in their respective industries. Following a rigorous selection process, we are delighted to announce that six outstanding businesses have been chosen to receive a grant, enabling them to further expand and strengthen their enterprises. The moment of revelation, capturing their joy and excitement upon learning of their successful grant applications, has been encapsulated in a short clip. We are immensely proud to support the growth and development of these deserving entrepreneurs, and we remain committed to fostering a vibrant ecosystem for small business success in our community. ...
