STRONG AND INDEPENDENT WOMAN
Mrs M Lefa of Hatuwa group in Sonwabile, in Matatiele branch under area 43A, which is managed by Nontethelelo Mlobeli is one of the strongest and most independent woman you may come across. She is currently raising five children alone after her husband passed away in 2012. Two of her children are currently in university.
Having two children in university, with no one to assist with payments, has led her to join SEF. She realised that SEF could help her grow her current business.
As a single mother, Mrs Lefa has come across many challenges, which she has overcome. Not only had the current lock down due to COVID-19 affected her business but she had to deal with theft and the key items which she sold that brought in good money like cigarettes were stopped by government.
