Funding opportunities for SMME’s in Kouga

Kouga co-ops and SMMEs have been invited to submit funding proposals for consideration by the Sarah Baartman District Municipality (SBDM).

According to an email from SBDM to Kouga Municipality’s Local Economic Development (LED) and Tourism unit, funding of between R70 000 and R200 000 could be availed to successful applicants.

“There is a template that must be completed and returned, together with a motivation no longer than one page,” said Kouga LED and Tourism Portfolio Councillor Frances Baxter.

“Applicants may also submit additional documentation to support their application, as well as business plans if any has been developed for the project or programme.”

She said the template was available from Xolile Wagosa at the municipality’s LED and Tourism unit. He can be contacted on 067 107 9154 or xwagosa@kouga.gov.za.

The office is situated at Kouga Municipality’s offices at 16 Woltemade Street, Jeffreys Bay.

The deadline for submissions is 3pm on Friday, 24 January.

“We apologise for the short notice. This is, however, unavoidable as Kouga received short notice from the district municipality.

We would, however, like to encourage all co-ops and SMMEs to make use of this opportunity,” she said.
