Hi, first of all we started this crowdfunding because our very small business is on the brink of bankruptcy. Our decade-old family business is selling huge variaties of locally grown and exotic vegetables like carrots, tomatoes, sprouts, beans, leafy greens and more, we also sell canned goods and spices like peppers, salt and curries. Our business is just a small retail store that supports and employs 4 families (yes, its not much because its just a small business). Our business purposely sells veggies in a very cheap price making it possible for them to eat 3 times a day because our costumers are predominantly poor people that earns 100 to 300 Philippine Peso or roughly 2 to 6 US Dollars in a day. We are located in a poor rural town in the Philippines. Our store is just 6 square meters but it is surprisingly feeds hundreds of people a day. Our store support more than 20 local farmers. Our business also has a partnership with local schools that feed students for free because mostly of the children in rural towns have a high rate of malnutrition.
We are asking for a small donation just to help us sustain this business and help more people. We assure you that your donation wont go in our pockets because our business is not mainly for profit but to help our employees, farmers and the people. Your donations will be use to help us to sustain, grow and expand to employ more jobless people and promote the local produce of farmers. Your donations will help us feed more hundred or hopefully thousand of people.
We are on the brink of bankruptcy and highly debted to banks and local lenders because its hard to sustain a business because we are not generating enough income to continue just like what we have said our business is not mainly for profit but to help people. Thank you and hope you help us.
