Catherine Wijnberg

Fetola Director and Originator of the Legends Programme

Catherine Wijnberg started Fetola because she loves business and is passionate about helping others reach their full potential. Her vision is to make a difference across Southern Africa by growing the small business sector- for it is here that jobs are created, future success is cultivated and women, youth and rural communities can create self-empowered futures. Catherine has a long history as an entrepreneur, having owned and operated businesses in five different sectors. Self-styled “enterprise activist” Catherine is qualified with a Masters degree in Agriculture and an MBA, and tells it how it is.
