While the Covid-19 pandemic has presented many challenges for businesses in the Kalahari, a young entrepreneur is doing her part to make a difference in Postmasburg.

When Patricia Basson (28) started her fast food business earlier this year, she could not have imagined her business becoming a success so quickly.

After Black Venus Exclusive meals received over 80% more orders in July, she started giving back to the community by feeding the homeless twice a week.

The pandemic and the lockdown only motivated her to overcome her business challenges.

During these trying months which led to a shortage of basic catering equipment and transport, she walked around the different areas in Postmasburg to sell her products.

This member of the Anglo American Zimele Youth Development Program creates her own recipes, which are a delight to her clients.

Once her fast food business became popular in July, she was able to save money to one day pursue her dream of owning an events management company.

To show her gratitude and appreciation for the success of her business, she started helping the homeless who are the hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.

To recognise and appreciate her loyal clients, Basson has started naming some of her creations after her clients.

  • She is thriving under the guidance of her mentor and constantly challenges herself to do better. The Anglo American Zimele Youth pillar focuses on young people between the ages of 18 and 35 living within selected mining communities, who are committed and want to invest in their own development to prepare for a better future.
