Daniel Mboniswa (55) had been unemployed for nine years before he attended a two-week Bread and Confectionary Baking course - which he passed with flying colours! After working as a gardener to earn money to buy the ingredients for his first batch of vetkoek, he sold them door-to-door in the township.

Using this money to buy more flour and oil, Daniel has grown his business into a thriving, registered bakery. Every morning he gets up at 3:30am to bake fresh muffins, scones, jam donuts, bread rolls and cakes which are snapped up by children on their way to school, as well as other members of the community. 

Today, Daniel has a reliable income and renewed self-esteem. He also created jobs for his wife, two sons and a local woman, all of whom work in the bakery.  From humble beginnings, he is now saving up for a commercial bread oven to expand his business even further.
