Homebaker Siphokazi Mance is working hard to open her own bakery someday so she has started a small business from home and inspires with her dedication.


South Africans are incredible business people, due to lack of jobs many take on their own businesses to help make ends meet. Small, medium and micro-sized enterprises (SMMEs) make up a large part of the South African economy according to the Small Business Institute (SBI). It is no surprise that people are coming up with incredible little businesses to help their dreams come true.

Siphokazi Mance is a homebaker with a dream to own her own bakery one day. To make that dream come true, she bakes her cakes, cupcakes and other sweet treats at home, packages them up in large tuppawares and walks them around to sell them. She has no car so she has to focus on getting her baked goods safely to their destination.

“I want to do this till I open a SIPHOSH BAKERY.”

“I work by my flat I walk when I deliver no car, no shop BUT with GOD all things are possible.”

People have been inspired by Siphokazi’s dedication to making her dreams come true.
