Mkhuseli Koyana relocated his family to Hermanus to pursue his passion for tourism. He believes that there is a gap in the tourism market, and since the beginning of 2019 he has been developing his business enterprise with energy and enthusiasm, after receiving training from the Grootbos Foundation. He is extremely serious about his business and has registered with the CIPC and obtained a tax clearance from SARS. He is married and has a two year old son. His wife is a qualified nurse and is employed at the local Municipal clinic.
“My business involves guided walking tours of Zwelihle. I have developed two interesting routes including places of interest, restaurants/coffee shops, shebeens etc. The enterprise struggled initially but I have been working hard on developing relations with the tourism operators in the town. To date the average number of clients per week has been five which is reasonable given the very limited amount of marketing I have been able to afford. I am confident that with the appropriate amount of marketing support I’ll be able to grow this to at least 20 clients per week in the short term with the longer term upside being 40-50 clients per week. I need this loan for website development, computer support, printing of business cards, pamphlets and flyers as well as other promotional material.”

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.
When clicking on the crowdfunding page you may find that your chosen project is already ENDED. This means that either the project is already fully funded or, that the time available to raise the funds has elapsed. In which case kindly search for another project to contribute towards.
