PITCH: Beach Rd, Three Anchor Bay, Cape Town, 8005
Words: Alicia English
Nomakhosina Sola has been proudly representing The Big Issue at her pitch on the corner of Glengariff Road and Beach Road, Sea Point.
The hardworking 64-year-old vendor has been selling the magazine since 2011 and is one of The Big Issue’s top sellers in the area. Nomakhosina is known on and off her pitch as a kind, loving and soft-spoken person, which is also evident from her extensive customer base. She also loves her family dearly, and enjoys singing and attending church.
Nomakhosina is a widow and mother of six children (one son sadly passed away) and six grandchildren.
She would like to run her own business and open a spaza shop from home to earn extra income so that she can help her kids complete school and further their studies.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Nomakhosina needs help with starting a spaza shop from home, extending her shack and paying for her children’s school and tertiary education fees.
