Access To Market Using Technology

Post Covid-19, digital technology has become a lifeline for millions around the world, and a critical tool to cope with the crisis and its aftermath. It is now or never; Women Entrepreneurs need to be digitally empowered. Today technology is a core part of everyday life. 

Almost every day we use smartphones, tablets, and computers to search for information, navigate to new places, pay bills and connect with our family and friends. The number of digital tools at our disposal is endless, however, many women are still struggling digitally. Smartphones offer a range of new ways to communicate, network, and learn. If women don’t know how to utilize digital tools, their businesses will suffer. It is therefore important to build capacities through skills training and complement that with digital equipment.


Objectives of the JTG women entrepreneur Bootcamp 

  • ICT interventions that are directed at economically empowering women capitalize on the potential of these technologies as knowledge and networking tools for women as producers and distributors of goods and services. 
  • To connect women to new and wider markets, broaden their social networks and provide them with information that opens up important economic opportunities.
  • Provide required training and mentoring in digital space;
  •  Provide digital tools to beneficiaries of the Bootcamp

MRKTTF assists aspirant entrepreneurs who want to own businesses but, they do not know how and where to start. We take passion, hobby, or skill and turn it into a business.

Sometimes you do not go to school to learn how to run a small business but, you have a business. That is where MRKTTF comes in to assist you, to take you to step by step in your business journey.

Mme Re Ka Thusa Trust Fund helps small businesses to grow their businesses so that they can grow and join the economy of the province and the country.

“Whether you are doing makeup out of a hobby or passion they are things you can do and things you can’t do. They are consequences that can ruin your reputation as a makeup artist.

Advise by the Provincial Manager Mrs. Gladys Motshele:

  • Always advise the clients to go for facial testing at Dischem, Clicks, Foschini, Truworths, Edgars. etc. The skin testing of what is going to react on you your skin and what is not.
  • At your own time, at your own cost, at your own pace. Learn how to test people’s skin, and test the makeup foundation you must use on different skin colors.
  • Let clients bring the makeup they use or make them sign an indemnity form that protects you if their skin reacts to the makeup you used on them.
  •   Collaboration is very important, make partnerships with other makeup artists. Some can be excellent in eyeshades, contouring, overlining, etc. 
  • Every day try to check one or two things about your industry.
  • Research the does and don’t about the makeup and beauty industry.
  • The moment you open the business bank account, take out public reliability insurance. When you are running a business, you are running it for the public. Protect yourself and your business

If you don’t know the cost of your makeup and how many people your makeup can accommodate.

It means you like what you are doing but on the administrative business side. You don’t know what you are doing!
