Being part of The Big Issue family has been a great experience. The magazine has taught me how to be independent at a young age, and to manage my finances as an entrepreneur.

Our vendor of the month, Sive Mondile, 24, sells The Big Issue at Longbridge Mall in Fish Hoek. He shares some of the valuable lessons he’s learnt as a Big Issue entrepreneur, and more.

“I come from Ntshingeni, in Butterworth in the Eastern Cape. I came to Cape Town in 2013 in search of better opportunities. I used to work in the construction industry, where there are no guarantees of being called to work the following day or months. In 2014, my friend Zuko Pholo, who is also a Big Issue entrepreneur, introduced me to the magazine.


Sharing is caring!
