INVITE – Info sessions ECEDF


The Ekurhuleni Community Enterprise Development Fund (ECED) intends to provide financial and non-financial support for the development of community enterprises within the City of Ekurhuleni, and is now open for proposals.

The fund is anchored on the Ekurhuleni Ten Point Economic Plan, a programme to position Gauteng Eastern Development Corridor as the anchor and footprint of the provincial economy.

ECED is made-up of three funding models – Phanda Fund, Ximilani Fund and Fetola Fund, which are tailored to provide support to individual entrepreneurs, small, micro and medium enterprises, cooperatives, informal traders, business chambers and formal businesses.
