During June 2020 I was forced to close down my landscaping and gardening business due to a combination of the lock down and two poor business years prior to the lock down. The South African economy was in a poor state already prior to our lock down. And landscaping and professional gardeners are considered a luxury.
During May 2020 I started buying bulk pharmaceutical grade Vitamin C and selling it in minimum 1kg quantities; I have sold 150kg thus far. Until now I have been using Facebook as my advertising medium. But Facebook has been increasingly restricting my adverts due to their policies.
My purpose is to educate people on the correct and optimal way to use Vitamin C to support their immune systems. I therefore sell my product at a very low price to enable a lot more people, including in rural areas, to buy pure Vitamin C. Compared to current prices, very few people are able to enjoy the benefit of daily Vitamin C use. If your interested, I can share the science with you.
There are more than 6 decades worth of science available on the the critical health benefits of having sufficient Vitamin C in our bodies. I have been educating myself during the past 5 years on Orthomolecular Nutrition by reading scientific studies and clinical literature. And my family and I have been using this product for 3 years now with great benefits to our general health.
I don't have a shop and don't need one currently. But one of my main restrictions is that I started this business, Essential Immunity, with no funds available and therefore with no stock on hand. I have asked people to order and pay up front; once I fill my required bulk purchase, I order, pay, collect, and then weigh and distribute across South Africa.
Besides the ever increasing Facebook restrictions, sales have slowed somewhat since people prefer to buy immediately when they are able to, and need to, instead of waiting one to three weeks before I fill my minimum required order of 25kg.
I therefore require stock on hand to grow my business. Which includes adding some new products too.
And this is what my funding request is about; you will be helping me to buy additional stock which I can have on hand to sell when people request it.
Furthermore, my family is dependent on my success too.
I thank you in advance for your support. If you are interested, please leave your contact details too, for future updates on my progress.
