KwaZulu-Natal’s development agency, Ithala Development Finance Corporation, is set to host the 2018 Business Achiever Awards which recognises business excellence in the province.
The ceremony, to recognise and reward clients for their role in developing an entrepreneurial province, will take place on March 28 at the Coastlands on the Ridge in Musgrave, Durban.
In a statement, Ithala said 15 clients from various sectors, including the agriculture, franchise, medical, tourism and the logistical services sectors and from as far as Pongola, Newcastle, and Kokstad, will compete for the coveted title of “Business Achiever of the Year”.
“We have nominated clients who epitomise a spirit of entrepreneurship, have a good track record of financial performance, made an impact in their community and demonstrated innovation and personal integrity,” said Ithala acting group chief executive Themba Mathe.
Ithala’s business finance unit plays a catalytic role in facilitating the development and empowerment of KZN-based SMMEs and co-operatives. The agency provides financial and non-financial support to viable businesses to enable their growth and advancement. (via African News Agency)
