Ayanda’s Story: How Masterpass is Helping a Small Family Business to Flourish
Small and medium enterprises have a big impact, contributing a third of South Africa’s GDP. Yet most of these businesses remain trapped in the cash economy. Through a local partnership with mobile commerce provider, iKhokha, Mastercard is empowering thousands of small businesses to accept digital payments using Masterpass, its digital payments service. One such business is Vukuzakhe Supermarket, a small general dealer in KwaZulu-Natal owned by Ayanda Gail Khumalo and her family. This is Ayanda’s story about how payments technology is helping her to grow the family business and leave a legacy that will benefit future generations.
