WE ARE MERELY THE CONDUIT FOR A PEOPLE LED ECONOMY
The People’s Fund is a purchase order crowdfunding platform for businesses that have orders with government and corporate and are looking for capital to deliver these orders. Our platform allows everyday people to participate in the growth of these talented entrepreneurs; whilst also making it easier for entrepreneurs to get access to funding.
Everyday people, like yourself, would contribute various amounts (starting from as little as R100) to fund a purchase order
The entrepreneur would then share some of the profits from the project with you, and every other member of the crowd in that project.
MEET SOME OF THE PEOPLE WHO CONTRIBUTED
Contributed to ALL campaigns on our platform
“I’ve contributed to all campaigns that The People’s Fund have put and that’s because I think it’s such a great initiative.
Helping someone to start a business and helping them to be successful; and maybe being lucky at seeing an outcome at the end, is a great opportunity and a great thing for business in South Africa.”

“The reason why I contributed to the campaigns that I contributed to was because I liked the entrepreneurial idea behind them.
But over and above that, what makes us come back to The People’s Fund to contribute, is the work they put in during the due diligence process when assessing the entrepreneurs to put on the platform.”

“This was a campaign that was particularly close to my heart. I am very environmentally conscious and this ticked the boxes for me on many levels.
Not only was it great for the environment and the diminishing bee population; but also did a great thing in terms of empowerment of underprivileged communities”

“The People’s Fund are the solution to giving back to the people. The records speak for themselves.
I found The People’s Fund and I believe in what they do. I believe this initiative is great for the community; I believe it’s great for everybody! It’s also one of the few corporate endeavors that are still not greased by the corruption oil in South Africa. It’s really fascinating and cool.”

“I like how easy and simplistic it is to find out about what investments opportunities are out there and the type of return that you as investor can get back.
My mindset is about: how can I be a better investor. The reality is that the inflation is higher than what they’re giving you at banks; so I’m trying to look for the best deal out there; and The People’s Fund speaks to that”

“If not us, then who? We complain that banks sideline us. We complain the funders don’t take us seriously. We complain that the requirements are too much. So if we do not do it ourselves as South Africans, then who’s going to do it?
I’ve found that it’s not that we do not have money; we just don’t know how to channel it in way that grows. The People’s Fund makes it easier to do that.”
These people, along with over 2000 people, helped us raise over R 20 million for more than 150 businesses in just over two years. Imagine what your contribution can do
