HI THERE BEN
I THINK ITS GREAT THAT THERE IS A WEB PAGE SUCH AS THIS IN SOUTH AFRICA. IT IS EXTREMLY DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN FINANCE WITH THE BANKS UNLESS U ALREADY HAVE THE MONEY THAT YOU WANT TO LEND . VENTURE FINANCERS HAVE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT START UPS AND SEEDS NEED AND NOT WHAT THEY SHOULD ALREADY HAVE. IF I HAD THE MONEY I WOULD NOT BE LENDING it ,right ??hope you keep it up and wish YOU ALL THE BEST .
