Hello, first I would like to say thanks for taking an interest in my crowd funding campaign.
This campaign is to help my business and help take people from the streets and give them purpose.
Last year, I was able to introduce a new product to the African market, producing concrete products. Over the year I have managed to build a factory and employ 8 young enthusiastic men, who would otherwise be standing on the streets, watching their lives go by. This is something important to me because I felt like I was able to give them purpose and a start in life. So far I have been able to provide them with shelter and food. Seeing the smiles on their faces and sense of achievement, really gives me great joy!
One of the first projects we were involved with was a well known Church in our community. It was a great learning experience and we are very proud of the result. This also helped our company brand get a lot of attention and brought great awareness to what we are doing. Which in turn lead to more orders for our product and service.
The problem we are now facing is that we cannot fulfill the demand we are facing without increasing our manufacturing. With the equipment we have now the turnaround to complete jobs is very unattractive to our potential customers, so we are losing business before we even start. Therefore I am requesting an amount of 5000 euros which will help me bring in more equipment and hopefully give me the capacity to take another 5 young men off the streets, and give them a future to look forward to.
The bulk of the money would be spent on importing a specific machine from Europe. With this machine we would be able to produce 46 m2 per day compared to the 10 m2 we are currently producing. This would significantly help us complete jobs at a faster rate and in turn help us to gradually grow the business.
I am putting all my effort into keeping this business running. I have a full time job of which 100% goes into the business.
In my current situation, I don't know what kind of rewards I can offer the incredibly generous people that are willing to support me and my employees. I can only state the obvious which is that when the future looks brighter, I will like to pay it forward and do the same for so many people who are looking for help on this platform. Anyone who wishes to be kept informed and updated on my progress will be considered a friend.
I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this and will be extremely grateful for your support and any donations I receive no matter how small.
