Phatsima Glass   

Keeping the sparkle in Phatsima

Phatsima Glass, established by Mr. Moloi, manufactures glass items such as trophies, and does sand blasting. He wanted to move his enterprise from survivalist to a thriving enterprise, sparkling with success. He approached Seda for help.

Seda helped with marketing materials and a business plan that could be submitted to the De Beers Zimele Hub for possible financing. Mr. Moloi was awarded and successfully completed a tender to the value of R120 000 to train 80 disabled and unemployed people in glass recycling.

Before Seda became involved with the business turnover was at an average of 4% and now it has increased by 583%.

Employment was at 2 permanent and 1 temporary worker and now boasts 8 permanent and 1 temporary worker. With plans to appoint agents all over the Free State employment will be increased by another 30 people in the near future.
