August is Women’s Month, and we are celebrating all women, but in particular, ten Kloof ladies who own their own businesses. Many of them are community minded and so are generous sponsors of The Kloof Project. We are so grateful for their support, so we hope you will, in turn, support them and their businesses in kind. The ten ladies who deserve a mention this Women’s month are as follows.

We are eternally grateful to Natalie for taking us on as a pro bono client!
