    Spaza shops provide essential services to local residents but struggle to succeed due to inadequate business skills and a weak supply chain. The goal of our project was to strengthen spaza shops by implementing the Triple Trust Organisation's programmes in Monwabisi Park and forming a spaza association. We organized a business training session, enrolled eleven people in Shop-Net, and facilitated the formation of a spaza business network. There is still room for improvement, but our work created a starting point for further development.
