It is better to make a difference than to be rich, according to Susan Steinman, head of the Centre for Social Entrepreneurship and Social Economy at the University of Johannesburg.
 
Steinman says South Africa needs to stimulate social enterprises which focus on creating businesses for the primary purpose of social development.
 
"While start-up social enterprises are grant-dependent, mature social enterprises trade in goods or services to raise income for the social purpose and in many cases show a profit," she explains.
