With a donation of around R80 000 from Droogfontein Solar Power’s Enterprise Development Strategy, local Kimberley catering company Julie’s Malay Kitchen was able to purchase much-needed equipment to assist them in successfully expanding the business and increasing efficiency.

An excited Judy Joseph, owner of Julie’s Malay Kitchen, welcomed the donation of R80 000 to purchase much-needed catering equipment

Joseph said that the equipment received so far has increased their day-to-day productivity so much that they are already looking at ways of expanding and moving to a bigger premises.

The donation, made in 2017, forms part of Droogfontein’s continuous support programmes aimed at local small and medium black-owned companies.

Support includes capital injection to improve their service offering and ability to seek growth opportunities.

Julie’s Malay Kitchen supplies meals to Droogfontein Solar Power and thus the donation also forms part of their supplier development initiative.

Being a 100% black woman-owned local Kimberley business, it has also showed potential and initiative for growth.

Hlengiwe Radebe, Economic Development Director of Droogfontein Solar Power, expressed how they were taken by the owner’s desire to grow and provide her services to other companies in the area.

“She had also expressed her challenges with acquiring additional equipment to enable her to expand her business,” Radebe explained.

In addition to Julie’s Malay Kitchen, Droogfontein Solar Power is reported to have assisted a number of enterprise development initiatives which have been implemented over the last three years.

Their initiatives aim to assist and accelerate the sustainability of local enterprises by ploughing financial resources into the local area.

These programmes are also reported to have the potential of surviving a 20 year life span and will remain focused on local communities in the Kimberley, Riverton, Ritchie and Barkly West areas.
