About Hermanus Siyakha
Hermanus Siyakha (HS) works in the community to identify deserving individuals and micro enterprises that it can assist with training, mentoring and interest-free loans. HS then raises funds for these projects in the form of loans and donations via our crowd-funding website. In turn 100% of these funds are provided as interest-free loans or grants to deserving individuals and projects. Projects are identified by means of a robust evaluation process and are ones that the team believe promote entrepreneurship thereby alleviating poverty and creating employment in our community.
In addition to benefiting from interest-free loans, all recipients receive training, coaching and mentoring by experienced mentors who are committed to developing and promoting the sustainability and success of these businesses.
Hermanus Siyakha is based in Hermanus, loans and donations are encouraged from full-time and part-time residents of the region. These funds are utilized to benefit micro-enterprises and projects primarily in Hermanus, but also in the greater Overberg region.
