Tshepo started his schooling at a local school in Soweto and completed his matric at Malvern High School. He currently holds a Masters in Mechanical Engineering and a Masters in Finance both from the University of Johannesburg. His believe in entrepreneurship stems from his engineering academia days’ theory; “for every action there is an opposite equal reaction”. Which simply says; the amount of sweat you put behind your dreams; determines the amount of success you will achieve tomorrow. Although StokFella was born out of his personal journey in seeking to solve the administration challenges he faced in managing his stokvel; it was also inspired by being part of a 20 year old family stokvel in Soweto where he grew up. By observation his family stokvel and a number of stokvel groups, it became apparent to Tshepo that the biggest challenge limiting stokvels from reaching their full potential was administration constrains.This is the aim of StokFella, to reduce the administrative burden of running and managing a stokvel. Tshepo believes once the foundation is properly laid with quality admin and financial literacy, stokvels and their members can truly begin to to pursue financial freedom.
