Beneficiary of the week: Lebohang Moshoke
Lebohang Moshoke is a 23-year-old young woman from Gatesville in Western Cape who owns a business that manufactures clothing items for clients that have an appreciation of quality-stylish designs.
Her travel and exposure to boutique outlets cultivated her love and passion for clothes and attire. She decided to establish her own fashion design business and contacted the NYDA Cape Town branch for start-up capital, after her church members had informed her about the agency.
The young aspiring entrepreneur participated on the Business Management Training and subsequently applied for the NYDA Grant Funding. The agency assisted Lebohang’s business, which currently employs two young people on a full-time basis, with R31 863.94 worth of equipment and merchandise.
She intends to employ more young people and equip them with designing and sewing skills. The Cape Town-based young entrepreneur has since been receiving opportunities to display her products at various fashion shows wherein she continuously gains insight about the industry.
