focused on enabling income generating opportunities and capabilities at the base of the economic pyramid (BoP), using a microfranchising business model.

4Walls targets the vast INVISIBLE MARKET of the urban and rural township communities with the objective of making a meaningful difference to the burning issues of poverty, unemployment and economic disempowerment in SA.

4Walls focuses predominantly on women and youth development.

the name of our business

is derived from the idea of facilitating ownership and successful operation of box shops (converted shipping containers and kiosks) – effectively providing the microfranchisee with

“4 Walls and a Business”

 

what is microfranchising?

It is the systemisation and replication of micro enterprises.

The overall objective of microfranchising is to promote economic progress by creating sound business models that can be replicated by entrepreneurs at the BoP.  The model gives individuals the tools they need to run successful businesses – a systemised business, access to funding, training and mentoring, access to products and strong branding.

The microfranchisor provides a ‘turn-key’ business for the microfranchisee to operate.
