RURAL women from Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal will benefit from the National Empowerment Fund's (NEF) R34.5 million loan to media mogul Khanyi Dhlomo for her highend boutique, Luminance, and will receive a 10 percent share of profits. The new boutique, owned by Dhlomo's Ndalo Luxury Ventures, is in Hyde Park, Sandton. It stocks luxury brands that have previously been unavailable in South Africa. The boutique will also stock crafts produced by rural women in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal. KZN crafters who will benefit are Vukani Arts & Crafts and Nkosimbeke, from Nongoma, Ababumbi and Zan Zan Decor, Pieter-maritzburg, and Simunye Hand Crafts and Jewellery from Kwa-Nyuswa.
