A YOUNG SINGLE MOTHER’S LIFE CHANGES WITH SEF
Bertha Moni is a young single mother of three from Mabatstaat. She joined SEF in 2013 and her first loan was R1000 which she used to start a small business selling snacks and sweets at a local school. Her goal was to assist to bring extra income in their household. She was motivated by her mother-in-law (who was running a spaza shop) to join SEF, moreover she was inspired by how her mother-in-law was able to achieve her goals through her savings. She was determined to change her life for the better.
In 2018 she relocated to Lekgalong outside Rustenburg with her children. It was difficult to make ends meets because she was not working and did not have funds to start a business. Moni always had passion for business. She knew then that she had to start looking around for SEF as she knew it was her only hope to get back to business. She had to start with a loan of R2000 in Lekgalong centre because she had dropped for more than 2 years.
