Kgantshi is based in Polokwane, Limpopo and runs a printing and graphic design business. When she joined the SAB Foundation programme in July 2015 her turnover was low. Her challenge was limited production capacity due to lack of equipment – she had to outsource a big portion of orders. She also struggled with poor understanding of financial management.
After taking part in the Tholoana Enterprise Programme, Kgantshi’s business has grown from strength to strength. The funding allowed her to purchase a large scale printing machine, which has contributed to her monthly income increase by 2 088%.
Other successful outcomes from the programme include the implementation of new financial management systems, allowing her improved financial control a full rework of costing and pricing, resulting in increased profitability; and a wider client base and service offering.
