I am trying to start up a pallet furniture business called Wood Away but I am facing enormous difficulties due to not having any start up capital. I need to get a bakkie first of all to source wood from Port Elizabeth which is a city 130km from where I live in Grahamstown. I have tried everything in my power to source capital to even just get the wood and machinery to start with, but I am disappointed each time. I believe that this is going to work as I have done a lot of research on this and there is no one else doing it in Grahamstown or surrounds.
I am a single mom of two small kids and I am not getting by with the tiny salary that I am earning from the church I work for, which is totally understandable as they just can't afford to pay me more.
I have also done a few things and marketed it and got great response which motivates me so much but I can't do much without capital.
I am feeling very desperate and after some more research, found this website. Please help me make this work.
