To kick off our #SageForSmallBiz campaign, we have the inspiring Brian Malatji sharing his story on how he went from having R200 in his account to running a successful business that is worth R2.2 million.
“I was involved in an accident a few months after leaving my job. I had to use the pay-out to repair my car, which was only six months old. I was left with R200 and I started to panic. I had a poor credit history and no capital. I tried to find another job, with no luck.”
Refusing to give up, Brian used the little money he had to buy airtime. He called all his contacts to ask if they knew of anyone in the township who wanted their gate and garages automated and got a few leads.
