Enterprise Development

EcoBakery (Pty) Ltd: A Successful Enterprise Development Project in Marikana, North West.

In 2023/24, alongside our sponsor, we proudly assisted Raserola Mashamaite in establishing EcoBakery in Marikana. My SME is dedicated to empowering entrepreneurs in South African communities through our enterprise development programs, catering specifically to companies engaged in corporate social responsibility projects.

Our enterprise development initiative focuses on providing business training and business coaching to entrepreneurs across South Africa, equipping them with the principles, knowledge and understanding of the local economic system. We guide these entrepreneurs in crafting effective business strategies, implementing sustainable business models, and establishing efficient operational systems for business management.

In collaboration with our partners, these programs not only offer technical baking skills training but also sponsor entrepreneurs with the necessary equipment to launch bakeries in their communities.
