Mofokeng took the initiative in drawing up a business plan which she submitted th the US product owners. She said:
"The manufacturers in the US were so impressed with my business plan and vision that they decided to give us the exclusive rights to selling the product in South Africa and Africa. We are the only small business to have done so because the rest of Shoebby distributors around the world are all big retailers”.
