Witness Zamani Khanyile's inspiring journey from adversity to triumph with FNB's support. Discover the power of resilience in achieving success.
Imagine being stranded on the side of the road for over 30 minutes, waiting for a tow truck to arrive. That was the reality for the people of Umlazi in Durban, KZN, until one man decided it was time for a change.
Zamani Khanyile grew up in Umlazi and saw the need for emergency roadside assistance services in local townships. Determined to make a difference, he approached FNB nearly a decade ago with a bold idea and a dream to create Mimbros Towing. After WesBank financing of Zamani's first vehicle, his dream became a reality. But his story took an unexpected turn when he lost his sight in a tragic shooting incident in 2015. Despite this setback, Zamani refused to let his disability hold him back.
A bright new vision emerges
With FNB's support as a financial partner, Zamani's towing business has flourished and he even recently purchased a home with FNB's home financing. His sense of relentless determination is embodied in his intention to continue on a path of growth. This includes the planned expansion of his towing business and vehicle fleet. In doing so he continues to prove to himself and those around him that a disability does not mean the end; it just means it's time for a new beginning and perspective. Zamani's resilience and unwavering will to succeed are a testament to the power of change. He is proof that no matter the challenge, with the right support and mindset, success is within reach.
As Zamani says, 'It's important for Mimbros to have a partner like FNB. FNB helped me get back on my feet. It's one of the reasons I believe that you can stand up and do it. Nothing is impossible. With their help I want to grow my business even further. They guide us through the finances, along with bankers who give us the direction we need.'
