Delta Gxolo is a domestic worker and single mother, who has put on her entrepreneurial hat to create a queuing service at the Department of Home Affairs.
She found an opportunity to queue on behalf of other customers in exchange for R100 or R150 to help provide for her children.
Delta arrives at the department offices in Wynberg as early as 5am to secure spots for a maximum of four people every Tuesday.
She explains that she stands in line for those applying for or collecting both ID documents and passports.
I leave my house at 4:30am to come and queue for the people who can't wake up in the morning. I'm making extra money for my pocket. I'm a mother alone, working for my children to go to school.— Delta Gxolo, entrepreneur
