In a bid to pay off his student debt, a 25-year-old has started a chair renting business outside the Home Affairs offices in Bellville, Cape Town and is now looking to expand to other government departments where people queue for hours.
Isaac Mpofu, who completed his BCom Financial Accounting degree at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) last year, is desperately trying to pay off his outstanding debt so he can obtain his qualification, which has been withheld due to outstanding student debt.
Speaking to News24, Mpofu, who is originally from Johannesburg, said he had to think of a way to earn a living, because he is qualified, but unemployed and needed to pay off the debt so that he could get his qualification.
He said he had started the process of looking for a job, so he could do his articles at the South African Institute of Professional Accountants (SAIPA), so that he could write board exams to qualify as an accountant.
