Over the next few weeks, we will be featuring the 2020 winners and finalists of the Santam Women of the Future Awards, in association with FAIRLADY and TRUELOVE. Entrepreneurs and SMEs are the lifeblood of South Africa’s economy, and we wholeheartedly support these incredible female entrepreneurs. We believe in providing a platform on which to showcase their incredible businesses.
The nine business women who will be featured have inspired us with their entrepreneurial spirit, commitment to seeing their business ideas through, and the sheer resilience and determination that they have shown during this unprecedented time.
Catherine Clark of The Harvest Table
2020 Woman of the Future finalist
Based in KwaZulu-Natal, The Harvest Table is a health and nutritional business that specialises in supplements. ‘We offer products that have a high nutritional value, and educate our customers on the importance of including these products in their daily lives,’ says owner Catherine Clark. When she was 20, Catherine was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, a form of lymph cancer. ‘I focused on educating myself on how to feed my body so that it would heal itself; this is where my passion for health began.’ Catherine is now cancer-free and is sharing her wellness journey through The Harvest Table. ‘We sell collagen, bone broth and other health supplements.’ She employs 12 people from her community. Her journey and a Covid-19 world have taught her that it’s time for businesses to be generous. ‘We all need to work together for the betterment of our nation.’
