Vathiswa Magenu - Vathi's Kitchen

Vathi’s story

“I started selling fat cakes on the street and I got this place in the beginning. I was paying the rent and later the owner sold it to me. It changed my life because I’m financially independent now.”

The impact of COVID and the looting

“It has affected my business a lot because I’m spending more money to get my stock. I’m talking about transport as I have to go further to buy what I need,and high prices on products that I’m buying. Also since people looted, business has been slow because they took things that they needed, so there is no need for them to come and buy as they used to.”

How you can help?

“All I need is the stock because I’m one of the victims in this. I didn’t loot but it came back to me now as prices are high. I’m no more longer able to afford enough stock for my shop.”
