“I am speechless. SaveAct’s savings and enterprise programme has helped me with everything. Now I live the life of an employed person, whereas before I was unemployed. I came home from the mines as I was retrenched. Through savings groups and enterprise training I have been able to become self-employed. I can provide for my family. My children can go to school. It’s like I am a working person, while I don’t need to move from home.” Mr Lefipha, a smallholding farmer from a rural village outside Matatiele.
