Matutu Milling as always been an active part of the Mabeskraal community. Its latest community involvement project has been the establishment of a small new business venture with Ms. Lynette Botlhe Ositilwe, a young female entrepreneur that showed great promise. Ms. Ositilwe approached the Matutu Management team looking for an business opportunity, we quickly saw that she had a great drive and started thinking about what she could sell or market for us, or maybe some other improvement that she could help with. That is when a new plan fell into place.
At the beginning of 2020 Matutu realized that it had a lot of broken bulk bags. These bags are used for the sell of the various Matutu Milling products, but over the years some of the damaged bags where starting to pile up. Matutu wanted first to pay to dispose of these bags but due to the location of the mine this would be a very costly exercise and this was where Ms. Ositilwe came into play.
When a bag gets a small hole the bag can no longer be used as the material is granular and would leak out, but these bags can still be used for the collection and transport of other goods like recycled paper, cans and bottles. We thus offered the bags to Ms. Ositilwe for free and she quickly jumped into action sorting the different bags.
So in summery this just goes to show that the old statement is true, one mans trash can really be another treasure. Ms. Ositilwe as effectively saved Matutu Milling money, cleaned up the environment by reusing waste while still creating an opportunity for herself. A great entrepreneur with a great spirit. We here at Matutu wishes her all the best in her future ventures and look forward to working together in the future.
