Sakhile Maseko started his business when his university bursary fell through. He started his watch business Aumax with starting capital of just R3700.
His business is growing rapidly and now employs fifteen people. Maseko’s bursary failed to come through when he was just 18 years old.
Instead of sitting and crying, the 21 year old founded his watch business. He sold his guitar for R3700 in order for him to raise start up funds for his business.
He contacted suppliers who provided him with samples which were not easily found in South Africa. His business has been successful, Maseko now makes about R460 thousand a month.
The business operates 24 hours as they make deliveries across Gauteng, Durban and Capetown. People can order even on social media platforms such as Facebook.
You order, they deliver, you pay, there are no bank details required, thus how their business has become so successful today.
