We started a business called The Word by Lucreative in 2016. It is a creative concept clothing company that aims to use creativity to spread The Word of God as well as to promote literacy in underprivileged schools in South Africa. We are currently faced with a scourge of mass unemployment in our country and we are passionate about assisting budding entrepreneurs such as ourselves to start and grow sustainable businesses that will change the course of their lives.
The business took off well and attracted a lot of attention from media and individuals. We encountered a set back 3 months into the business where a supplier failed to deliver and refused to refund us the monies owed. Being a startup business the loss of cash flow forced us to cease operations. We have taken all possible means to recover the money with no avail. This has also damaged our credit record which makes it difficult to secure a business loan from lending institutions.
We are confident that our unique concept and the reception we got in the first three months of the business is a winning formula. We appeal to you to help us to see the vision realized.
