Let's face it - being an entrepreneur has many challenges. BUT, being an entrepreneur with a disadvantaged background is a whole different story. Velile is an example of one of 1,3 million informal entrepreneurs in South Africa that fights to survive on a daily basis.
Hoorah is a for-profit startup in South Africa that does NOT engage in charity. Hoorah empowers local African entrepreneurs through providing e-commerce infrastructure needed to grow their businesses and create self-sustaining income streams. Job creation? Well, yes - but more like permanent self-employment.
Velile's story has inspired many others to join Hoorah's platform, but for Hoorah to reach all 1,3 million entrepreneurs we need to SCALE this part of our business. We have proved our processes and gained overwhelming social proof, now to reach more people like Velile.
Hoorah has been identified as one of the top 52 startups in Africa by e-commerce giants Alibaba. We also focus on the next generation of online buyers and sellers through offering e-commerce courses to schools.
Your donation will fund outreaches to rural areas, e-commerce equipment such as our trademarked Hoorah Pocketshop (seen in the video) and ensure the needed infrastructure for job creation for more Velile's out there!
