Poly brings big and small together
The Windhoek Country Club Resort and Casino (WCCR) handed over machinery to the value of N$10 000, to two small business owners, last week.
Katrina Haidula, owner of Pillow Manufacturing and Distribution cc was overwhelmed when she received a Singer overlocker from Clara Bohitile, deputy chairperson of the WCCR Board of Directors. The WCCR had decided to take the hand of the Polytechnic of Namibia’s Centre for Entrepreneurial Development and Research Department (CED) upon a request from Margarette Bennett, director of the CED.
Edward Namulo, owner of Spyker Plumbing cc, received a cordless drill, tile cutter, spade, and a generator. Francois Brandt from the CED received the goods valued at N$7000 on his behalf. At the hand-over ceremony, Bohitile, said: “We turn people into business owners. Not only will this encourage other Namibians, but we will monitor the progress of these two business entities and give feedback to the local community, proving that once you set your mind to it- anything is possible.”
Tony Boucher, general manager of the Windhoek Country Club Resort and Casino added:
“It gives us great joy to know that our contribution will assist in growing these two businesses. We are privileged to be able to assist great Namibian initiatives like this.”
