Coco Company is raising funds to create booking websites for holiday destinations in Mozambique.
Each holiday destination will have their own website with information about the local community projects, activities, restaurants and then the accommodation available within each destination. There will also be a mother site created that will have a map of Mozambique on the home page, and when a visitor to the site move their mouse over a specific holiday destination the area will highlight and on click take the user to that locations website.
Advertising space will also be available on the mother site and on the sister sites. A 15% commission will be charged on bookings made via one of the websites. Resorts wishing to have their establishment listed on one of the websites will have to agree to our Policies in order to have their establishment shown on one of the websites. For resorts wishing to advertise on the mother site or on the home page of one of the sister sites 20% commission will be asked.
We have already created the facebook pages for every holiday destination we would like to create a website for and this will be used for marketing of the website for each destination. A special offer will be advertised on the facebook pages that should a client book via our websites a 5% discount will be given.
Therefore making the websites the cheapest booking channel to use if you wish to book accommodation with one of the resorts listed.
Using Tripadvisor for a due diligence report of the project, we have concluded that should we only get 10% of the market the websites could potentially generate $350 000 to $400 000 annually.
Should you wish to invest in this project we would like to ask that you, join us in pledging that 10% of the profits made with this project will be donated back to the communities of Mozambique. They are a pour nation and any and all community projects created will benefit them greatly.
I have created a facebook page for the coconut palms that are invested with the rhinoceros beetle in the Inhambane region. The local communities are not aware of the problem and the page was created to start awareness with the resort owners. This is one project that Coco company will definitely be donating to. The pheromone trap for these beetles can be bought online from China. Coco company will import them in bulk then distribute them in the affected areas.
The palm trees are a way of life for most of the people living in poverty.
As they use all parts of the palm in every day living.
Building houses with the palm leaves that they weave making "makuti" for roofing and walls. Also consuming the coconut daily for sustenance. Coconut oil is made and sold at the markets as well as coconut shavings.

What the funding will be used for.
As the website is already designed the funding will go towards a tour from the South of Mozambique "Ponta Do Ouro" to the North "Pemba". The tour is to take videos and photo's of each holiday destination that will be used on the websites marketing will also be done along the way.
Before leaving for the tour a banner for each destination will be created that will be erected on a main road leading to each destination. The banner would only ask tourist to like that destinations facebook page. As all signs in Mozambique require a fee to be placed the funds will go toward the 3000MZN for each banner payable at the local governing body. By placing these banners for one year we insure that every tourist already going to Mozambique will have access to the new website for their next booking.
Before leaving for the next destination the currant destination will be uploaded and made public.
Resorts in each destination will also be visited offering them assistance to list their establishment on the website.
The tour will be done in two parts.
- Ponta Do Ouro to Villanculos
- Inhasorro to Pemba
I will create a facebook group for investors to join and follow the progress of the project.
https://www.facebook.com/Coco-Company follow this link and like the page. I will shortly publish information and create a group for the company.
There are only 45 shares available, every investor that buys a share will be provided with a certificate of the shares purchased.
The project will only commence once all shares have been sold.
Thank you for taking the time to read this fundraiser.
