We are excited for you to meet Keitumetse Ntshole, the founder of Kaone Ngwedi.

Learn how she got her hustle together to birth Kaone Ngwedi:
Keitumetse Ntshole is a 27 year old single mom to a 4 year old princess, she is a fierce fearless go getter, a goal oriented individual, who doesn’t only think outside the box but thinks of what she can do with the box!
Kaone Ngwedi was birthed in 2015, with a cellphone, laptop and just an idea, while working in one of Gauteng’s biggest electricity suppliers, that was my first official job but I knew then and there I wasn’t meant to be an employee, it was not my calling, I then left to run a Petroleum filling station that was when I knew I was on the right path, the business world was calling my name and I am answering..
Kaone Ngwedi (Pty) Ltd is a 100% black female owned multi-disciplinary company established in 2015. We conduct our business to both the Public & Private Sector. We are a committed team which works with clients big and small across a range of sectors. The company comprises of 3 divisions; Kaone Ngwedi Construction and Site Maintenance, Kaone Ngwedi General Supplies and Kaone Ngwedi fuels . Kaone Ngwedi also manufactures Cleaning Chemical Detergents, PPE ( Personal Protective Equipment)
I honestly think it’s a challenge starting a business with no capital, I built it from my own pocket it was even more difficult especially with the responsibility of being a single parent, am raising 2 kids now ( my daughter and my business) and a business gestational period takes way longer than a real child, it’s a learning experience though.
Simple, I didn’t give up, I didn’t let being broke stop me from dreaming and getting what I want it may take me years to reach the level I want but I will get there, and that’s all I have ever needed to know
Honestly my bank account, lol, my account doesn’t scream “ you can sleep in today” my name is not on the Forbes list so I don’t have a reason to not hustle hey, and mostly my daughter motivates me, I want her to have everything she desires, this is her legacy, it’s her name on it, so I must make her proud
Social media is playing a big role in marketing our business and products, Facebook and Twitter more so, has allowed us to expand our client base nationwide..
I am currently completing my Law degree so, I would probably be a Lawyer, actually it’s the plan, I don’t think it will lock me down to a typical 9-5 routine, it’s going to fit in well together with what I am already doing
Don’t worry about what your neighbour is doing, start with what you have and run after your destiny
Expect big things, we will be moving in spaces which people wouldn’t think black females won’t succeed in, we are going to break barriers and change the status quo.
