There is nothing more devastating than not being able to provide for your family!
This is the position I am in right now. Having been retrenched from a company that can no longer afford to pay my salary, and having depleted all my resources, it's been hard for a 53 year old man to get employed in a country where unemployment is on a 27% high. That is the reality of living in South Africa! It kills me inside not being able to provide for, the gifts that God has entrusted me with, - my wife and children!
In times of crises, one reinvents one's self and learns new skills. And I have done just that!
I have identified a market in which I as an entrepreneur, can take advantage of, and create my very on little business. And that is in creating social media video's. I am very creative, and I know that I would excel in this area.
A life saving tool to get me started in this business, is an online video maker called Biteable. It will allow me to build simple videos fast and get me earning money right away! But this is where the problem lies, as the cost of Biteable for a one year's subscription is 276 US Dollars. One US Dollar = over 13 South African Rands. Not much perhaps, but for a father and husband who is seriously struggling to put food on the table and a roof over my family's head, it's unattainable!
All I need to get me started is $ 276. Nothing more, nothing less. That's standing in the way of getting this business going. That is all I am trying to raise funds for.
And to any kind Angel investor out there who is willing to contribute to this cause, I commit myself to giving them regular feedback on how the business and my family are doing... for as long as they want.
I thank you in advance for your kind consideration.
