My name is Olwethu Petros. I am 31 years old; I was born and grew up in Hermanus. I completed the Grootbos SME business management course and opened and managed my own internet café. The business premises were unfortunately burnt down during the service delivery protests in mid-2018.
As I live with my parents on their property in Zwelihle I have been able to reopen the internet café on this site, which is 100 metres from the Zwelihle Taxi rank. In addition to the internet café I also do wedding shoots and take photographs at special events. I now wish to expand this operation to include a small photographic studio so that I can increase the photographic services that I offer. I have already self-funded the walls and roof of a 22 square meter studio, but I require funding to complete this and install a suitable backdrop and lighting.
Total loan applied for R6000
This project has been set up to succeed through a careful vetting process together with ongoing mentorship and management. Repayment of your loan will only take place at the end of the loan period (usually 12 months) and not monthly. However, as we cannot give any guarantees, in the unlikely event that the project does fail you will not receive the full repayment of your loan but a pro rata percentage depending upon what portion of the loan has been recovered from the business owner.
