Our Inspiration

UNAM SOLUTIO (PTY) LTD is inspired by Rayelene Govender's great grandmothers legacy - Unammala Thangalan.

“Unammala was an immigrant who came to South Africa in the 19th century. She could neither read nor write but she ran a small business which supported many people. I admire her drive and tenacity in what must have been an incredibly challenging and difficult time to raise a family. She had no formal schooling, was living in a land with discriminatory laws and came from a strong patriarchal culture. Her story which has been passed down through generations has always stayed with me. Using part of her name to give identity to the consultancy was a natural conclusion.”

UNAM SOLUTIO is about solutions. We are focused on building value driven relationships with our clients and creating the right solutions to meet their unique needs.
