SMME Programme: Kumshile’s story

For several years, FS & W Contractors, owned by Kumshile Nuku, was a dormant company until a golden opportunity to work on a project SANRAL presented itself in 2010. Located in the Eastern Cape, Kumshile employs 15 people and has expertise in road maintenance and construction of houses.


“We are most grateful to SANRAL for having confidence in us and entrusting us with an exceptional project that helped get us off the ground. It has been a dream come true to move from a staff complement of just a handful of people to where are now.”

Over time, Kumshile’s company learnt from SANRAL how to perform tasks in an orderly and systematic manner. Gradually, the team gained confidence and good time management became second nature.

Kumshile believes education is a must for developing SMMEs wanting to make it big in the industry. He also said dedication, commitment and hard work should be guiding principles for growth.
