MUTI SUPPORTING GREAT CAUSES
It is estimated by the World Trade Organisation, that small and medium enterprises represent 90% of the business population, 60% of employment and 55% of the GDP of developed countries. SME's don't just contribute to the ecconomy, they ARE the ecconomy.
My business, Fermental Ltd, is a very small business. As yet, I am the sole worker in the business & I am kept very busy maintaining the stocks of my products in the retailers that sell them, keeping my website up-to-date & scurrying around to manage market stalls, reach out to new retailers & nurture the 10's of small-batch ferments I have on the go at any one time.
This does not mean however that I can't do more, that I am unable to contribute to things that mean a lot to me & communities both here & abroad. With this in mind I have decided to keep aside 5% of my net profits & donate them to causes close to my heart & the hearts of others.
5% of my net profits currently is a humble figure in monetary terms, but it is a start & I am commited to maintaining this percentage as my business grows & hopefully, one day, this will lead to generous donations that can & will make a difference to someone, somewhere.
If every SME the world over did the same thing this would have an amazing impact.
In practical terms, I will donate the money every three months & will, for now, support two charities or supportive organisations that I feel are having a real-terms positive impact on our planet. Environmental regeneration & support for my fellow human beings & wildlife will always be the focus of those I choose to support.
So far this year I have raised £139.75 for this initiative & the first donation will be made toward the end of March 2022.
I am currently working out the details & will share them once settled, but one of the charities I will be supporting this year is empowering women farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa by providing business support, finance & education to women & youth in rural communities.
Thank you for your continued support for Muti products, every purchase you make will contribute in its own small way towards a better future for all.
