@TEPCentralSA takes the Cherry on top!

The Tourism Enterprise Partnership (TEP), as implemented in the Northern Cape and Free State by Anix Consulting, is a flagship tourism SMME support programme that seeks to facilitate the growth, development and sustainability of small tourism businesses in South Africa.
An important part of this is assisting with market access. For example, TEP together with SEDA and the provincial tourism department, made it possible for 20 small businesses to sell their products and services at the 2011 Ficksburg Cherry festival.  Masupatsela Adventure Tourism is typical; this black owned adventure company, based in the foothills of the Drakensberg in Qwa Qwa, was catapulted into mainstream tourism. Its owner, Andile Mokhathi, made it clear just how important TEP’s role is in making sure that SMMEs fully utilise these initiatives: “I was exposed to the fast emerging market of black people who were interested in my services……the presence of Lesogo (SEDA) and Phillemon Moabelo (TEP) really kept us motivated, I was impressed with their visits and little chats….thanks SEDA and TEP for this wonderful opportunity”.
