Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The idea of this project will target various groups/beneficiaries such as fruits farmers, people with non communicable diseases (due to 95% of natural products), entrepreneurs and business owners, educated and non educated youths. Also, this project is going to have positive impacts on sustainable development in different sectors such as industrial and innovation, agriculture and productions, employment and economic development , generally to give back to the community. Those impacts are as follows - Enabling employment opportunities to large number of youths and economic development. A factory will hire workers and low wages so as to support operations, for instance will employ engineers, marketing officers, procurement & supply officers, record managers, health officers, human resources managers, drivers, business managers, accountants and many more. Fruits farmers will get direct employment regarding to raw materials needed. - Development of agriculture sector especially in fruits farming. Fruits farming has been disappeared and not guaranteed by government in terms of market, so that this factory will promote and waking up the community to invest in this sector also enhancing this department as well as farmers economy. - Development of entire community and Tanga region - Contribution to district and country revenues - The factory will give back to the community so as to donate in social activities, projects and social entrepreneurship (during achievement of its goals) - Generally will contribute to Sustainable Development Goals in different ways And the future success will be measured and evaluated by the number of customers, partners, support from the government and economic status of small also medium farmers.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Implementation plans and business models are as follows; - Identifying the number of orange farmers, their hectares and tons of raw materials per year - Collection and inspection of raw materials will be done every week at the factory area. Farmers will be paid after submitting their fruits. - The first three months, the factory will work 12 hours a day for initial monitoring and follow up but the coming months will work 24 hours every day. - Within two weeks of operations, factory management will start promoting juice products through media such as Clouds TV, ITV and East Africa TV in order to sell and introducing the brand to the market. - Initial months of operations, management will require more interns and volunteers to work in this project. After that, the factory will employ them in machines, inspection of materials and supplying of products. - Also, Factory management will establish an organization for farmers so as to encourage and educate them to engage modern cultivation in order to ensure availability also quality of raw materials and sustainability of the project. That institution will connect targeted farmers of orange fruits and it will be easy to motivate others. Sources of money will depend on my pocket, competitions or prizes and donations from various organizations. Currently, I have 300 USD as a start up capital but its not enough to accomplish the project that's why I do competing so as to get assistance. In other way, the factory will collaborate with other industries (like Bakhresa Food Products, Mohamed Enterprises) and agricultural organizations in order to strengthening and busting Healthy Juice brand in the market. Collaboration will increase capital of the factory due to sharing of tools, experts and skills. - The use of non-disposable and other packages that can be recycled in order protect our environment
