From Creamer Media in Johannesburg, this is the Real Economy Report.
South African cement producer PPC has rolled out an express outlet pilot project in Orlando West, Soweto. Megan Wait has more.

Megan Wait:
The project, in partnership with Mobile Payment Corporation (MPC) and First National Bank (FNB), is aimed at empowering entrepreneurs, using PPC’s corporate social investment (CSI) model. It will offer beneficiaries the opportunity to start their own cement outlets, as each beneficiary receives a start-up package which includes a PPC branded container; a pallet of 40 bags of Surebuild cement; and training. PPC CSI manager Francie Shonhiwa explains.
