We’re for the entrepreneurs. The do-ers, dreamers and creators. The challengers, rebels and believers. And now we’re bringing that experience to life. We’re excited to introduce to you the very first Yoco Pop Up Store! We’ll be in Maponya Mall across from Clicks, from August to October 2018. A home for small business, in the heart of Soweto.

Small businesses in the space

We’ve invited entrepreneurs to sell their products / services in store – a pop up within a pop up! We’re not only about making it easier for you to get Yoco, but also empowering small businesses to get their names out there. Here’s who you can expect to meet:

Walk Fresh

Lethabo Mokoena and his crew are rewriting the township narrative through their sneaker cleaning business. Visit the Yoco Pop Up and give your pair of shoes a new lease on life.
