The company always tries to keep up with the latest trends doesn't matter what it is and always keep in mind the affordability and the quality of the product.

What is your biggest success?

My biggest success was starting my own business during one of the most challenging and difficult times of my life in the year 2022. It was the moment where I was able to buy a few products for my business out of my own pockets while being on a "learnership" in a different city from where I'm from, having to pay transportation of more than R1000 a month , while also having to focus on getting my business out there. It was one of my greatest and biggest success.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

My biggest hurdle has been finding funding/capital for my business. Applying for funding, doing research by myself about funding opportunities, equipping my knowledge about how to get funding. Whenever I come across a website which gives funding than the one requirement which always gets me is having to have an income stream already from the business,which I don't have. It's my biggest hurdle not being able to see my business grow ,not being able to fund it out of my own pockets and not being able to apply for funding or not having the leads where to apply for funding to.
