FOREWORD

FOREWORD _________________ We believe we can make a difference to fast-track our small businesses out of the devastation caused by the pandemic. ________________ Overall, the organisation has taken the time to go into the townships and engage with the communities to gauge first-hand what are the crucial issues. What's more important is that we listened to our people and are putting plans in place to make things happen for them. Using the muscle of the mother body and the networks we have, we believe we can make a difference to fast-track our small businesses out of the devastation caused by the pandemic, the rioting and looting last year in key areas and the drop-off in demand experienced over nearly two years. SACCI remains committed to these initiatives. As we have not had such an experience before, so we adapt our programmes based on our learning experiences as we go along and build on such experience. In so doing, we grow the programmes outwards to areas we currently have no presence in. This way, we strengthen our role in a positive way for our business community. SACCI stands for everything good in our business communities. Mboshini Engineering Steel is a small business based in Lillydale in Mpumalanga which has expanded its range beyond burglar bars and doors to steel window frames and trailers, bull bars and palisades.

However, there are a number of indicators which suggest that a recovery is underway in 2022, and SACCI will be working hard to support small businesses.
