South Africa. Annah Nomathemba: I have been taking this course lightly, but now I have realized that it will help me to know how to run a successful business and if I have difficulties, I will now know how to deal with them.
Since 2020 people have been losing jobs. This is an opportunity for us to start our own businesses and become bosses and create job opportunities so that we can reduce poverty in our country. I have become more self-reliant and able to say I’m qualified to run a business on my own.
Togo. My name is Wolanyo Kossi Mivedesome alias Malix Magloire, I am a cultural journalist, director of a rural radio in my area, audiovisual producer, and voice over coach. I really appreciated this program because it changed my life in general.
With all that I learned as I evolved in the course, I notice a progressive change. I say today that my life has changed. I am able to save the amount of money I have decided to save each month. I don’t mix my business money with my personal money anymore… This has allowed me to have more savings than before. I know that in the coming months this will allow me to be definitely on my own. My home is well organized and I feel a new LIFE in almost every area of my life. My relationship with clients has improved greatly.
DRC. Paddy Mukongo Mulamba: The Master of Business in the Street course from Interweave Solutions is a life contributor for me. The units presented have all spoken to me personally and made me more aware of how to better organize things for myself, my businesses and my community. Tailored for all walks of life, this course not only transforms us, but also stays in the genes of anyone who would be true to themselves while learning. I have become more motivated than I was before and all because I feel like I am in a family and supported.
Angola. I am Felisbela Bento. I am 27 years old, I have a degree in Work and Organizational Psychology and I still live with my parents. My desire to be an entrepreneur comes from way back, since 2012 when I was in High School.
I used to sell cookies at school to my classmates and teachers, and I didn’t stop; I continued selling several products, which I do until today. I took some courses related to business to gain more knowledge. Today I offer make-up services and I also sell several products online. Taking the MBS course was a new experience in my life and I learned a lot. Now I am more disciplined and I have more knowledge to inspire other young people like me, who want to be excellent business people.
Ivory Coast. I am Adou Hervé BOSSO, a young Technician working in a private company. I can say that this training allowed me to overcome my fear of getting into entrepreneurship.
Today, the riches of this training have allowed me to develop the necessary skills to create and take off my own integrated farm business (pig farming and operation of a pork restaurant using an oven). Thus, the assurance this adventure gives me is a comfort and I want to recommend it to anyone who intends to acquire their self-reliance.
DRC. Mugisho Ntanga Fiston: I am a university teacher. I started teaching in the secondary school in the city of Bukavu, South Kivu province in the Democratic Republic of Congo, while I was still a student at ISP Bukavu. After my studies I was appointed as an assistant in the English department of ISP Kaziba. I was always trying to take small initiatives to earn a living but nothing was going well.
Today, with this MBS course, I am able to start a small production unit of school chalk that will respond to the difficulties that teachers in my country face during their teaching because of the poor quality of chalk they use. Thereupon, I find this program very important in life. I will train other young people to understand that entrepreneurship is important in their lives.
Zimbabwe. Happy Duru: It started as a very tiny view if not a vision. I used to look at what other businesses did. I then started to Google about how I can start a small business in line with motor vehicle services but most of the views at Google required a huge sum of money to commence it. Luckily my friend introduced me to online lessons of how to start from scratch and fortunately I found Interweave Solutions with its best tutors ever.
I managed to go through the whole course and apply it practically and I saw myself with a concrete confidence to just do it. It wasn’t easy since I had my personal business errors but with Interweave Solutions they brushed me if not washing and I became solid enough to make it work. Now business growth is the new norm for me. Hence I release balloons in air as a salutation to the Interweave Solutions Online institute.
Nigeria. My name is Chichi Akaka from Cross Rivers State, Nigeria. I am averagely educated and I am a professional dancer, that is, I dance for a living. I have been into dancing for years now but I never knew one could apply the 6P’s to a dancing career. But my encounter with a friend who told me to do the MBS course, no matter how busy I may be, had really changed my notion. I can now boast of regular savings, improvement of my dancing process and so on. This program is really worth it; biggest thanks to the board and members of Interweave.
South Africa. My experience with the program is an eye opener. First on the 6 Ps, which I was not following in business,and secondly the issue of records.. This program has opened a lot of doors to success. If I follow all the steps, in the next 6 months I will be a leading poultry farm and will be able to expand to other countries.
My name is Selby Mazibuko. I come from a family of 6 and have business links where by I work with investors for Energy projects in Africa. I’m a cool guy who likes music, travel and driving. Taking this program has affected how I will handle business as a business and also handle my life as my life. In the past, I was doing things that were having a bad effect on my business growth but with this course, I will change my management system. Lastly this program has opened the issue of community service, which I was not doing, but now will be involved to assist so that the community can grow along with my business.
South Africa. Matilda Tsitsi Fakazi: The programme was a huge transformation on how I do business. I did not understand the basics of business (6Ps) until I did the Masters of Business in the streets.
I am now keeping records for my catering business. I now have a daily to do list, an income statement and also a savings plan. My life at home and in the community has improved! Thank you for the great opportunity!
