“I realised that I could be my own boss.”

As a successful sales rep, I was invited to attend an embroidery expo in Singapore in 2007. This inspired me to take what I have learned back to South Africa and start my own business, with the support of my family. My wife, who handles the administrative side of the business, has been especially key in providing moral support and sound advice over the years.

Nedbank was part of our business from the start: helping us buy our first embroidery machines, and then helping us grow to heights I would have never imagined. We hope to create more jobs that will, in a small way, grow our country’s economy, and move into our own building one day. With the ongoing support of Nedbank and our banker, Esme Narainsamy, I’m sure we will make this happen.
