Nosisa Magutywa is originally from the Eastern Cape, where her mother taught her how to sew and bead. She is divorced and has two children, and calls herself a survivor who refuses to give up. In 1997, she decided to start working for herself and made jewellery, dolls, place mats, key holders, and Christmas decorations using an ice cream box full of donated beads and materials. With the help of Mhani Gingi, Magutywa learned the entrepreneurial skills necessary to be successful, and was rewarded with sponsorship from Transnet. She now sells at Kirstenbosch Craft Market and the Country Craft Market in Somerset West.
