Here is a beautiful and inspiring letter from one of the entrepreneurs CAST has worked with:
“My name is Annah Nxumalo. I live in Shongweni and support my daughter and five other children from relatives.
I only had work one day per week and was struggling to provide for my family. A lady from Westville Baptist Church found work for me for another two days and helped me to start up a tuck shop.
CAST sent me to Entrepreneurs 4 Africa Conference for four days, which taught me how to run my business.CAST also helped me build up some capital by letting me buy a bag of second hand clothes, which I sold in Shongweni.
I am so grateful to the angels at Westville Baptist Church and CAST who have helped me so much with encouragement, support and advice. Now I am able to pay my childrens school fees and feed my family.I have put windows, burglar bars and a door on my shop with the money I am making and I am also able to help my community as there are no shops in the area and people struggle to buy food.
Thanks you Jesus for sending these angels to help me care for my family- our lives have been changed”
