Beneficiary of the week: Siphosethu Jam Jam
Siphosethu Jam Jam (23) applied and received the NYDA Grant Fund to the value of R50 000 through the Port Elizabeth Branch, to buy a container and catering equipment for his business. He is running a fish and chips outlet in Walmer Dunes, a township just behind the Port Elizabeth International Airport. His dream is to grow the business to a fully-fledged restaurant, attracting tourists visiting the Nelson Mandela Bay.
Walmer Dunes is one of the areas where flagship Provincial anti-poverty and economic growth programmes will be implemented through partnership with private and non-governmental organisations. Infrastructural development work is already underway, creating an enabling environment for Siphosethu to realise his dream.
The launch of his business was attended by the Ward Councillor, Youth Forum, NYDA Staff and community members. The councillor expressed his appreciation to the Agency for the positive contribution into what he called “the resuscitation of the township economy”.   
Funding through the NYDA is possible!
