SMME Development one of the RBIDZ’s priorities in driving socio - economic development

05 JULY 2018

RBIDZ as a vehicle for socio economic development and community upliftment, it also looks into developing SMMEs not only with mentoring and coaching, but also with business start- up essentials for ease of work execution.

Recently, RBIDZ handed over a 2600W lawn mower machine to Phethulwazi Services, as part of the organisation's Supplier Development.

Phethulwazi Holdings is an Empangeni located emerging contractor whose business focus is on Construction, Renovations, Landscaping, Welding, Electrical and Plumbing Services, General Maintenance and Cleaning.

‘As the catalyst for economic prosperity in the province, we fully recognise that SMMEs are a fundamental part of the economic growth and are a positive means to eradicate poverty and create employment in developed and marginalised areas; they also play a crucial role in furthering growth, innovation and prosperity’. ‘It is within our sentiment to continue on supporting SMMEs, provide mentorship and business support for their growth and sustainability.’
