Noluvuyo Sodela, a reality TV star and entrepreneur, claims load shedding has had a significant impact on her business.
Sodela, also known as Bubbly on the reality show This Body Works For Me, owns a company that treats ingrown hairs and hyperpigmentation.
According to her, the majority of her business machines require electricity.
Bubbly stated that she started the company in 2020 and is now losing money.
“As an entrepreneur, you must expand on a daily basis. “Load shedding is causing havoc, both mentally and financially,” she explained.
Bubbly stated that she intends to expand her business but is concerned that her plans are jeopardized.
“I am planning on starting an online course to teach people how to take care of their pun@nis. But I am unable to do that right now because some people won’t be able to connect due to load shedding.
“V-jay shots used to boost my business a lot. I am unable to offer that service anymore because I need electricity for that,” she said.
Bubbly said her business survived Covid but now she’s worried about the constant power outages.
“It is so frustrating because I end up having to reimburse clients and return machines and products that I bought.
“Sometimes, I am unable to send packages to my clients on time because when I get to the courier company, there are delays because of load shedding,” she said.
The businesswoman said she previously tried to get an inverter and was unsuccessful.
“I’m currently checking other options.”
Noluvuyo says she has had to adjust certain habits like drinking & lifestyle and spend more time alone.
“I had to go on ice cream dates or church and do introspection. it’s been great,” she said.
