Rita Zwane, known as MaZwane, the co-author of Conquering the Poverty of the Mind – MaZwane’s Story, and founder and chairperson of BUSY CORNER Imbizo Shisanyama, has become a legend in South Africa as a pioneering entrepreneur – and an inspiration for those who ask questions about opportunities in the informal township economy.

Her business memoir shows the true grit of a Zulu girl who believed in herself – and did it against all odds.
