Local is lekker!

The Local Enterprise Authority (LEA) recently hosted members of the media on a two-day tour covering Bobonong, Molalatau and Selibe Phikwe.

The idea was to showcase some of the enterprises supported by LEA and to document their journeys to date.


Nestled deep in Bobonong’s Dandane ward, with the Matshekge Hill looming large in the background, the bakery is famous for its fresh bread and fancy cakes.

Now in its third year of existence, the business has risen impressively since 29-year-old Botsile Moreba first set-up shop, baking pre-ordered cakes from home.

Desperate to expand his business, Moreba approached the Youth Development Fund (YDF), who backed the young entrepreneur to the tune of P97, 000.

The brilliant baker then sought the assistance of LEA, who helped Moreba write-up a detailed business plan, which he submitted to CEDA in 2018.

The agency’s response came back positive, along with a P700, 000 loan, spent on bigger, better equipment.
