Meet Sibongile from Swaziland
Sibongile is our primary artisan, having started with us in 2009. Selfless, astute and giving, she believes in education and entrepreneurship; volunteering in her community to teach people life skills, English, Siswati and encouraging them to start their own businesses. Passing on her knowledge to her three children she is paying for her son to go to university in South Africa and her two daughters both have high hopes and dreams for their future.
Since a young age Sibongile has loved working with her hands, knitting and crocheting, and therefore becoming production manager and head trainer at Quazi at the age of 44 was an easy transition. Having assisted Quazi grow she has a clear understanding that in order for a business to be successful products should be of high quality and in her own words “products should be made with love” proving in her own work that this is true. Most importantly Sibongile is profoundly aware that in order to achieve success personal happiness is essential.
Besides wanting to buy her own car and homestead her dream is to open a child day care centre.
