My name is Johan van der Vyver and this campaign is for my daughter Michelle van der Vyver, a 14 year old entrepreneur to expand her bakery. She is a really hard worker and has proven herself in every way possible. She has won the 2018 Kragdag junior entrepreneur competition and has been featured in the Pro Agri magazine and twice in our local newspaper. She is attending a business coaching and mentoring program presented by Fergus Ferguson from Action Coach. She attends market days where she sells her freshly baked goods. She also has around 50 regular customers that she supplies to and this figure is growing on a daily basis. This fact has led to the need to expand as the current equipment cannot handle the demand for her freshly baked goods.
The funds are needed to upgrade current equipment to be able to fulfill the demand for her freshly baked goods and to enable her to compete in the 2019 Kragdag junior entrepreneur competition. Michelle won the 2018 Kragdag junior entrepreneur competition in her category, this year she wants to compete in the higher category.
As Kragdag is on the 8th to the 10th of August 2019 we need to have the equipment sourced and installed by no later than the 16th of July 2019 which is also her birthday. Funds will be channelled to suppliers to buy the equipment and essentials needed to expand the bakery. And to ensure that Michelle can participate at the 2019 Kragdag junior entrepreneur competition.
Michelle will be ecstatic, it will be a huge opportunity for her to expand and create a sustainable business which will create employment opportunities in our local community. It will also inspire her to donate even more than she already does
Thank you for making a difference and helping a young entrepreneur shape her future
