Khotso Marokane is a 34-year-old young entrepreneur and owner
of Zee 4 Security and Supply.
Khotso dreamt of starting his
own business so that he can be able to make a living for himself. He heard about the NYDA from social media
and approached the Groblersdal District Centre to enquire about the products
and services that are offered by the agency.
“I was advised by one of the
consultants at NYDA that the agency offers grants to young entrepreneurs like
myself who need assistance with establishing their businesses. I then visited
their District Centre in Groblersdal. The assistance from the NYDA Groblersdal team was pleasant and
beneficial. The staff was very helpful, attentive and responsive,” said Khotso.
Khotso went through the
process of Business Management Training and applied for the NYDA grant funding.
He used the funds to buy business equipment such as chairs, tables, boards, laptops
The NYDA grant funding has
enabled Khotso to successfully run the trainings and tutorial sessions which
his company offers.
To date, Zee 4 Security and
Supply has three (3) full time and six (6) temporary employees. Khotso intends to grow his
business in the future.
Khotso’s word of advice to
aspiring young people is that they should make use of all opportunities available
to them from the NYDA and other funding institutions.
“Take chances while they are still available
and put your dreams into actions,” he added.
He concluded by thanking the
NYDA Groblersdal District Centre for their outstanding supporting.
