CAST Savings Club Story: Mama Khombisile
Mama Khombisile is incredibly passionate about wonder bags! She joined CAST’s Chesterville Savings Club with the intention of putting aside R50 ($3.84) a month to purchase materials for the wonder bags.
As she explains, “This is a big opportunity to open my own business.”
At the moment, Mama Khombisile supports herself by selling bottles and cans to be recycled. She also receives a CAST food parcel to supplement her diet.
Her granddaughter lives with relatives in Inanda, and is in Grade 10. Gogol Khombisile would like to use some of her savings for her granddaughter’s school uniform and further education.
More recently Mama Khombisile became the treasurer of CAST’s Chesterville Savings Club.
Mama Khombisile is one of the many local community members who benefits from CAST’s development programmes and is working hard to achieve her future goals.
