One of the biggest things we can be thankful for is local businesses using their expertise to help local problems.

A striking example of this is being implemented in Alexandra, Johannesburg by entrepreneur Miles Kubheka. He is the owner of Fill, a unique store that offers people the opportunity to buy food.

Many South Africans are struggling to make ends meet, so finding money to buy basic items has become difficult.

Ever since this experiment started in his shop, it has been very successful. The truth is that stores and sellers have their own set of rules and often they work in a business model that relies on profitability.
