PlusPlus enables more food security, entrepreneurship and employment in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Through crowdfunding, we raise capital for small and medium-sized enterprises in the agricultural sector. It’s not a donation, but an investment. Thousands of individual investors will contribute directly to increasing production and thus more food and jobs with fair wages. Once the loan is paid back, the money can be invested again. Like a gift that keeps on giving.
The platform will be launched in a couple of months. Leave us your email address and we will send you a notification when the platform goes live.
Small and medium-sized entreprises are often too large to qualify for microcredit, but not yet able to meet the requirements of commercial banks. However, these entrepreneurs have great potential to create new job opportunities and increase food production. PlusPlus offers a solution that enables these entrepreneurs to grow. You can join in 5 easy steps:
Step 1 - Choose the project you want to invest in
The PlusPlus team coaches various entrepreneurs in different countries. All of them are entrepreneurs who are committed to making their business grow successfully. You decide in which entrepreneur you invest.
Step 2 - Invest between € 50 and € 5000
Not only do you choose the entrepreneur in whom you invest, you also determine the amount. Depending on the size of the company, an amount between € 10,000 and € 1,000,000 is often required to successfully grow. Together we will raise that money. Every participation counts.
Step 3 - Make a difference
The entrepreneur uses your contribution to improve his or her business. As a result, production often increases. This provides extra income and jobs. As the business continues to grow, so does employment and food security. Win win! Or: PlusPlus.
Step 4 - Receive updates
The entrepreneur will send you occasional updates. This way you get to know more about the entrepreneur and how your money is invested. You’ll realise how big the impact is you are creating.
Step 5 - Contribute again
Once you get your investment back, you have the possibility to re-invest it in another company. Thus, without an extra penny or effort you change the life of another entrepreneur. And another one.
