My name is Lulama Kamana, I am 60 years old and I attended the Grootbos Foundation Small Business Training workshop in 2018. Subsequently received a grant to expand my catering business. I have extensive experience as a hotel and restaurant chef and so catering seemed the natural route to follow. I am hardworking, determined and enthusiastic about this venture, in which I am assisted by my two adult sons. I have been operating a small catering business for five years but have now expanded it to provide services to the Hermanus Municipality and the Zwelihle community. Over weekends I sell food from home and recently I have started renting out catering equipment and utensils.
With this loan I can purchase additional catering equipment such as a chip cutter, bowls, tables and other essential items. This should enable me to double my income from both catering and the hire of catering equipment.
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.
