Tlhoafalo Basadi Co-operative   

Strength in unity

When eight members from Bodibe Village near Lichtenberg in the North West Province decided to form Tlhoafalo Basadi Cooperative, they knew it was not going to be easy.

They knew how to make clothing for schools, corporations and weddings but they needed Seda to help them with a business plan and funding to expand their operations.

With the development of the business plan, the co-op was able to get funding for machinery. The basic management business training and marketing material of business cards, flyers, folders and signage helped a great deal. This managed to attract contracts from the Department of Social Services and some schools in the area and led to them building their own premises, and members are now able to draw a salary.
