ISIYALU Manufacturing is built around enabling many struggling families to become self-sustaining over a period of time. In my family we experienced numerous tribulations and hardships growing up specially later in my 20s when we lost our mom through the township political violence back in 1991, it’s only these circumstances that inspired me to be learn to be self-sustaining through building a business that could work more effectively for me but also a business that would also help and empower my family and its employees to be self-sustaining as well, hopefully inspire other aspiring SME that all is possible. Our business has a four year plan that definitely requires additional capital investment to increase our manufacturing, marketing, branding and our planned launch of our own branded sports retail store due to launch 1st December 2017. Our four year plan will deliver 25 permanent and 5 on project basis jobs. This is the future plan, but for now, the simple fact that I have a positive impact on 45 other families keeps me going and inspires me to greater heights.
