BUSINESSWOMEN from all over the South Coast met at Hill Billion Estate for the South Coast Business Chamber Women in Business Breakfast last Friday.

The organisers invited speakers from the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality, the Lower South Coast Women in Business Forum, Workforce staffing, the Small Enterprises and Development Agency, Standard Bank, Manto Management and the Industrial Development Corporation to address the businesswomen.

President of the Lower South Coast Women in Business Forum and co-owner of Mnandi Meats, Zoleka Langa, was well received by the audience as she encouraged attendants to network and grow their businesses with other enterprises, instead of seeking success individually.

“Our motto is networking, professionalism and success,” said Langa.

One of the exhibitors from Women’s Arts and Crafts, Ivy Skhahlane, said she appreciated the platform afforded to her by the South Coast Business Chamber.

“I make handbags from recycled newspapers and cupboard boxes and do beadwork.

“I have fed my family and put my children through school with this business.

“I appreciate the support I have received,” said Skhahlane.
