It is the season when friends and family show how much they care about each other by exchanging gifts. Why not go further and give to an entrepreneur this year by shopping in black-owned businesses?
A report released by the Department of Trade and industry in September shows that black people in South Africa own a paltry 3% of the economy. By buying black, you will be making the circle bigger and helping entrepreneurs thrive.
Below are some entrepreneurs you can support.
