Women Crush Wednesday is Tracey Lange's award-winning feature that creates a platform for women to share their uplifting stories.
Cape Town-based Catherine Wijnberg is a successful entrepreneur with immense experience in starting, growing and operating several businesses.
"I started my first business at the age of 25, and there's a long journey of highs and lows... ended up back in Cape Town back in 2000 and restarting life as a result of a divorce and losing everything,"
"I asked myself a question... 'What is it that one woman can do to make a difference?' and I realised that I have a real passion for business, I already by then had experience in starting and running about 10 businesses, in three different sectors,"
"I thought... the one way you can make a difference is by helping people to be the master of the money in their pocket — and so that led me to Fetola."
Wijnberg launched Fetola in 2006. The organisation empowers and upskills budding entrepreneurs to build successful businesses.
