“I have been touched by Fetola’s unique authenticity and deep commitment to uplifting South Africans. A wealth of innovation and support has been added from conceptualisation of the programme through to our current stage of execution and we see Fetola as our implementation partners as opposed to a service provider.”

 – Heather Lowe, Head Enterprise Development, FNB
