The mobile business unit is part of our Big Shake-up Accelerator programme, a rural training programme that aims to equip women and youth participants with the basic opportunities and skills of running a business, regardless of their education level.

This business unit is the first of its kind in the Northern Cape, offering business registrations, Central Supplier Database registrations, BEE affidavits, tax clearance, bookkeeping services, and other supporting services like printing, scanning, email and photocopying. Business advisers will travel with the unit to Hanover, Britstown, De Aar, and Philipstown, to help entrepreneurs with business advice and mentoring.

“We are very excited about the partnership with DASP on the mobile unit. It certainly will make a big difference to so many entrepreneurs who often find it difficult to get to an e-Zone for their business needs,” said Lizelle Coombs, CEO of Angels.

“Considering that youth make up 32.4% and women 50.5% of the total population in the Pixley Ka Seme district, we are looking to predominantly support these marginalised groups through our enterprise development programmes,” said Hlengiwe Radebe, Economic Development Director for De Aar Solar Power, sponsors of the unit.
