A South African woman called Nosipho Kholutsoane served up all sorts of inspiration and motivation after the story of how she managed to start a successful vintage car restoration business.
According to a Facebook post, Nosipho began the business with only R2,000 (N44,375.68) in her pocket, which she had borrowed from her husband. This came after she had watched a TV show about car restoration. She then used the R2,000 (N44,375.68) to buy a rusted 1947 Pontiac. The rest is history, reports IOL.
“Five years later, Kholutsoane, 39, employs four people in her business Lereku Trading Classic Cars, has a customer base of vintage car enthusiasts from all over the world, and is currently completing the Small Business Academy’s (SBA) Development Programme of the University of Stellenbosch Business School,” writes USB Small business academy on Facebook.
Nosipho’s success has seen many Facebookers congratulating her on reaching for goals and dreams that more often than not seem too far away to obtain.
Here are some of the comments they wrote:
Amanda TheVintager Jaffar wrote:
“I need to find her shop! Love her xx”
Nana Zulu asked:
“Would you be able to please connect me to this lady?”
“Well done, that is such a wonderful story, wish you many more years of success, you go girl.”
