Spaza shop owners assisted
Earlier in 2017, BSSA trained a group of 30 Gauteng spaza shop owners in basic business skills, on contract for Beehive Capital, an organisation which designs and evaluates enterprise and supplier development programmes.
The training forms part of the Mondelez Spaza Shop Development Programme, intended to develop knowledge and skills among participants to enable them to access opportunities and grow their businesses.
BSSA trained the shop owners on business management, competitive bulk buying and how to price stock, marketing, how to manage cash flow, and customer service. Training of a second group also started.
