PRASA building new generation of entrepreneurs.
 PRASA (Paper Recycling Association of South Africa in conjunction with Fibre Processing and Manufacturing are currently playing a crucial part in raising the new generation of entrepreneurs in South Africa.

Since 2009, PRASA have trained over 3500 entrepreneurs nation-wide by giving a new hope, life and helping young South Africans and some foreign nationals put food on the tables of their families.

The initiative which is supported and funded by FP&M SETA is providing a platform whereby people can get trained to be self-employed in recycling industry. This training is normally organised for up 20 or above interested candidates twice in a year.

 In a recent training organised by PRASA at the Cornerstone Church, Uptown, in Braamfontein-Johannesburg, the venue of this years' final training; Ursula Henneberry,(Operations Director of PRASA) says "we support rural development and we believe paper recycling is an effective way of addressing job creation."

"More than just creating jobs we want people to see the possibility by starting and owning small business enterprises and taking a step forward", she continues.

Funding for entrepreneurs has always be the main discouraging factor for people who want to be their own boss and employ others and how many entrepreneurs really have access to start-up capital in our economy of today.

SEDA(Small Enterprise Development Agency), an organization that helps basically entrepreneurs and people in small-scale entities across the country would have new applicants to take care of as the training finishes up on 2nd October, 2015.These new entrepreneurs are ready to exercise their expertise in this trade that can change the face of South African economy.
