Ten lucky “taxipreneurs” received cash checks of R10,000 while two of those 10 clients each won a taxi, thanks to SA Taxi’s Win A Taxi contest which took place on 23 September.
SA Taxi communications director Maroba Maduma said he knew the industry was struggling like any other business.
“With the deadlocks that were happening last year, knowing that most of our customers were trying to make payments and update their installments, some of them fell behind and others were able to reimburse them. “, did he declare.
Maduma added that to help the industry, they selected 10 customers who put in an effort and put them in a raffle to win R10,000. Two of the 10 participants won a taxi to develop their business.
Excited to win a check in the amount of R10,000 and add one more taxi to his fleet of 18 taxis, Abel Msiza, who has worked in the taxi business for over 42 years, said he was short of words.
Msiza said he had been driving taxis for 42 years without any problems. He added that he started out driving someone else’s cab for nine years until he bought one himself.
“This will bring a big change to our family business. SA Taxi has helped me enormously. I was able to buy land and shops using the profits from my taxi business. That’s why I always made sure to pay my taxi down payments on time, ”Msiza said.
Anna Choma, recipient of a R10,000 check, said she felt good even though she hadn’t won a taxi. “It’s better than leaving [with] nothing. SA Taxi has proven that they will always take care of us.
