I run a small coffee business which I founded in 2018. It is a small bootstrapped business that is currently shooting for the stars, however we have been stopped hot on our tracks to the big time by the covid-19 pandemic which has forced our President to announce a national lockdown. We have been left with no other option but to heed the call to shut our business for the period stipulated.
We are now faced with a situation where the business will go three weeks with no income, no income means rent cannot be paid, employees salaries are also at risk, our water and lights are also at risk of being cut off.
We appeal to everyone who is in a position to help to make a small contribution to the survival of our much beloved business
Reaching my target will mean that we are able to see through these hard times and are up and ready to operate when things return to normal.
The funds will be used to support the staff members at the time when the business is not making any income.
Staff salaries for 4x member R16000
*As per the campaign creator’s request, funds raised will be paid directly to the relevant institution*
