Nobody ever says that starting and growing a business is easy. And for one young entrepreneur, the process was especially tough. Meet Mokgadi Mabela, founder of Native Nosi, a South African honey business.
“When I first started out, I didn’t have access to the same resources that many other entrepreneurs have”, says Mokgadi. “I am black. I am a woman. And I am a beekeeper. Three big road-blocks to getting started.” But Mokgadi was undeterred.
She was committed not only to building a successful business of her own, but also to helping others realise their entrepreneurial dreams – other smart, enterprising South African women.
