“I prayed a lot and cried out to God for help, but I quickly understood that nothing is impossible with Him because He is our provider.”

The 33-year-old started her business, called NASO Creations (Pty) Ltd, in 2020 but couldn’t really start the business as she had very little capital.

In July 2022, Nangamso officially registered his business and endeavored to run the business:

“Whatever I do I use it to grow the business so that one day I can create a nice yard and add a fence to the house. I want to build a house for my single mother who has been struggling since the death of my father.

The young entrepreneur learned to crochet at school

Nangamso says she was inspired to start her business by God, who reminded her of a highly valued skill she learned when she was young:

“I did needlework at Libode Primary School in the Eastern Cape. I fell in love with it back then, but I had to change schools when I went to high school, there was no needlework, so I had to forget about it.

“When I couldn’t find a job, God kept reminding me that I loved knitting and crocheting. It’s such a beautiful art to do and therapeutic. It healed me.

The entrepreneur explains that she operates from home and markets her products on social networks:

“I make unique and stylish cardigans, mini skirts, maxi skirts, crop tops, crew necks, polo necks, suits, bikinis and much more.

“I normally take two days to make a skirt depending on the length, and 3-4 days to make a cardigan, depending on the size.”
