"Working for these companies really sharpened my skills as a painter and I learnt project management as well"
- Herbert Makamba, Painter

Herbert started his painting journey as a provincial painter for the Grain Marketing of Zimbabwe. His duties included painting parastatal’s infrastructure for the Harare province. In 2007 Herbert decided to move to South Africa. Upon his arrival he initially worked as a freelance painter charging day rates before he was hired by Tri Partitioning a few years later. “Working for these companies really sharpened my skills as a painter and I learnt project management as well” says Herbert.

It was in 2014 when Herbert first heard about Fix Forward. He was inspired to join and pursue his dreams of being an entrepreneur, and not just a painter. “It was at Fix Forward that I acquired extra skills on project management, pricing, marketing, communication and entrepreneurship. I also had a business mentor who helped me grow as a businessman. It was Fix Forward that helped me believe in myself” says Herbert. Through our mentorship programs Herbert was able to realise this dream and registered his own business, Agile Hands Painters.
