What We Have Done

We have deployed capital into a few business opportunities that are growing steadily, but we still need to grow our share capital considerably to give us the necessary leverage needed to capitalise on low, medium and high investment opportunities that will yield significant profits over the short medium and long term. 

In addition to the above an increase in the amount of membership also means being in a position to deploy capital into community projects that benefit all and potentially create jobs.
