Women in homeownership
The growing presence of women homeowners makes for a memorable celebration of Women’s Day. While women in society are recognised in many ways every August, home ownership is perhaps one of the most meaningful in a society where many mothers raise
children in single parent homes or where many women have been financially dependent on men. Home ownership helps change that.
 We take a look at some of the changes that have been taking place in this issue.  
We take a look at property sales on the KZN South Coast, which was less impacted by the unrest but will inevitably feel the effects – which hopefully will be limited as citizens in the province have been repairing the damage and getting on with business.  
The South Coast, like many decentralised regions, has benefited from an influx of remote workers who have been forced by Covid-19 to work at home – and find that home doesn’t have to be in one of the big cities. The move to smaller towns has accelerated the demand for fibre and other forms of communication, and our telecommunications solutions and data analytics services enable improved decision-making for ISPs and FNOs. Read more about that too in this newsletter.
