This week we had the pleasure to have a chat with Tebatso from South Africa. She runs two totally different, but equally exiting business initiatives: own catering company and bitcoin investment. In order to grow both of them she is looking to raise capital on Bitbond. Here is her loan:
B: Do you run a business? If so, what kind of business is it and what should investors know about it?
T: I am a bitcoin investor and also involved in a catering business that provide lunch food for civil workers. I need the loan so that it can help me grow my business and invest more in bitcoin as bitcoin is doing well at the moment so that my businesses will be able to help each other in times of financial need.
The equipment that I need is a mobile food trailer that cost from about $2,500-$6,000 depending on what I need to be installed inside e.g zincs, fridge, stove etc. This will help me so that some food like salads can be prepare at the selling spots according to demands and I can carry and store important stuff at hand or carry them along and serving people will be easier and healthy.
The other thing is that there is a need to increase the menu, as there will be more people in demand. This means there’s need to also buy more groceries, increase utensils like pots, plates and serving bowls. And there will also be a need to increase the helping hands so we will be able to meet up with the number of our clients.
As I am borrowing from a bitcoin company and lenders are already aware of how bitcoin is doing at the moment, so I have already invested in bitcoin, what I need is to increase my investment so that I can acquire more bitcoins in the future which will also assist me to repay the loan as soon as possible. My bitcoin investment is at: https://7b68392c.usi-tech.info/.
B: How come you ended up starting this business and why have you chosen this particularly niche?
T: Starting catering business was an edge and motivation from people that I know. I do know how to cook food that people enjoy and it will be nice when people outside my territory could enjoy my taste. And I realized that many people just sell food because they need to do something and make money while in the nutshell they cannot prepare food well.
I have also realized that catering business is so broad in the way that you can venture into different spheres of business while still doing catering business. When the business grow as a caterer you can end up manufacturing your own sauces and end up importing them or having tenders from different supermarkets and also restaurants. The other thing also as a caterer you can end up owning a restaurant.
So this is just to highlight that this business can grow to be big and it will grow to that extent in the future. I also started investing in bitcoin as a new venture that has ringed a bell for everyone not to be left behind as a new niche in this technological world. It’s an interesting business also because you just put money and your money works for you while you don’t have to work hard like other businesses. Investing in bitcoin is one of the most interesting businesses at the moment and highly rewarding in a short space of time.
B: What do you hope to achieve with your loan and why did you choose Bitbond over a bank?
T: I do hope and believe that this loan from bitbond will be a great breakthrough for me as its going to assist my businesses to reach higher heights that I could not do so at the moment but the loan will do so for me. So this is a great helping hand for me.
I chose Bitbond because I’m also an investor in bitcoin, so it will be easier for me to pay the loan from my bitcoin earnings also will be a huge impact to do my business and also be an investor at Bitbond once I have re-payed my loan back as I have realized it’s another way of making money to be involved with Bitbond
B: What is your favorite feature on Bitbond? What features do you think are missing?
T: I liked the steps of applying for the loan, they are user friendly, I would like to see if bitbond would also allow credit cards/debits cards link so it will be easier for their clients to withdraw their money into if they did the research and found it safe.
B: What would you want potential investors to know about your loan?
T: I want potential investors to know that this loan will be paid in less than 12months, and they must understand that no man is an island in life, as human beings we need each other. What my other brother/sister on the other side has I don’t have, what I have they don’t have, so for everybody to be successful in life there’s somebody who paved, help to clear or water the seed to grow.
I promise to pay the money in very few months so they can reinvest their money again and not hold their money for long. This loan is a major breakthrough for me in my businesses so they will be indeed carrying my head forward and I’m thankful for their assistance, it will surely go straight to what I need to do with it.
B: What do you think the future holds for bitcoin? Is it the modern-day equivalent of the internet or will it fall flat on its face?
T: The future is very bright for bitcoin, it’s the real deal at the moment. It will be bullish and not fall. People just need to be informed well and given knowledge about bitcoin, once they now they will also be involved. The other reason I am saying bitcoin will take the market by storm is that at the moment many bitcoin companies are booming up, where you can earn in bitcoin by mining bitcoin, trading bitcoin and also as an affiliate. So surely bitcoin is here to stay
B: As a business owner or an employee, does your place of work accept bitcoin? If not, what do are the chances of that changing?
T: At my place of work and business they are not yet accepting bitcoin, but I see it changing very soon as now many people are becoming aware about bitcoin
