MESSAGE FROM RANVEER PERSAD, PROGRAMME MANAGER OF GIJIMA KZN

Greetings

The last quarter of 2007 was one of the best in the life of the Gijima KZN programme. First, the programme disbursed over R12 million in grant funding, the highest of any quarter. Second, we were able to assist Grant Beneficiaries for the LCF Imp 4 (ii) round of funding to leverage over R31 million of counter funding.

In this newsletter we take a look at one of these recently funded projects – a training initiative which addresses challenges faced by small businesses in the Empangeni region.

We also provide a report-back on the recent Project Cycle Management Workshops hosted for grant beneficiaries and feedback from a workshop held to assist Gijima KZN and KZN DED staff to view business plans from potential grant beneficiaries through the eyes of our funding partners.

As always we encourage your feedback and involvement in the compilation of this newsletter. Please send any opinions, comments, news and suggestions to Gil Harper, whose contact details are at the end of the newsletter.
