William Chiwara is a Zimbabwean citizen, 36 years old, well-spoken and confident. He is a qualified barista and has been involved in training other baristas in Mpumalanga at the end of 2018. Currently he and his wife Florence run their own Natural Health coffee shop in Kleinmond. The coffee shop opened in 2017 and recently moved to fully equipped premises at a very busy crossing, opposite a service station, a shopping centre and next to the primary school, where there is enough parking space. Since moving he has built up a steady stream of customers.
William completed the entrepreneurial training course at the Grootbos Foundation and received a grant which enabled him to purchase a state-of-the-art coffee machine.
“I am requesting a loan of R9 500 to purchase a machine to produce organic peanut butter, for sale in the shop. At present no-one in the area is making preservative-free peanut butter, and I intend to manufacture, bottle and sell this product under the shop’s name. I can also use the product as an added ingredient in the very popular smoothies that I make.”
Total loan applied for R9500
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.
