Asanda states that she has always been entrepreneurial at heart and is currently involved with the innobiz DUT Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, where she is receiving business mentorship, business compliance support, technical skills training, industry specific training, personal development, and seed funding.   

“I have always had a passion for entrepreneurship, and to provide quality hygiene products that people can use in their daily lives for maximum hygiene, to protect themselves and their families. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, I saw a gap in the sector and decided to turn my idea into an existing business,” Asanda Zondi says.

It is so amazing to see a young girl's dreams become a reality. We wish Asanda all the best in her endeavour and hope to catch up with her in the future.
