Explain your idea in details:
The main objective is to make both farmers and consumers atmost satisfy.DFARMc is an online app where public can look at products available at offline store(solarized) currently and can place an order so that employees(the dealers who lost their job because of our company will be hired) pack them and place aside.when ever customers are free they can collect them within seconds or else if they want home delivery they need to pay excess amount.the trucks we are planning to run with help of solar so that transportation cost would be less and on the other hand we are working on developing on engine mileage to make to double than usual by using special mechanism, which would be helpful in decreasing the transportation cost when solar energy is not sufficient.later on once DFARMc got succeded we are planning to work on alternate methods to increase production quantity by layered vegetation and to safeguard crops when uneven climatic conditions took place, which in turn would be highly advantageous to farmers.Later on we will have deals with industries which produce products helpful for farming and sell those products at less cost to farmers and in turn further decrease in the cost of farm products.this would happen only if we expect less amount of profits which we are ready for it just for the sake of happiness of people.sice farmers were making profits agricultural sector will again increase and everyone who left cultivation due to losses and struggling at someother places alot for money will again start cultivating which inturn poverty line will decrease, so that there wont be deficit of food products which inturn "no hunger".with all these india would develop into agriculural hub and make huge income from exports of farm produts.india would start moving from developing stage to developedstage.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The first and foremost target of DFARMc is to provide all kinds of farm products available at low costs to the consumers.The future targets were to increase the production quantity with quality.the main final target is to make india as an agricultural hub.all the people in world, all farm based industries would be our customers if it runs good. The business plan itself brings sucess, i am that sure because with the help of this idea there will be only one dealer between farmers and consumers , so that cost of product brought from farmer and selling toconsumer will not be changing that high which is happening like now and we are the one who are expecting less profits so that products cost would be less. no one want to buy a product at high cost if he got to know that he is going to get same product at much chepar cost.this is the only principle that i am using which makes me sure that each and every one will buy only at our store.even farmers were also getting advantage with us they won't be selling their products to anyone and finally all the farm based industries should listen to us and follow us, because they are lacking of products with them. which gives me advantage of deciding the costs of products coming from industries.i am going to supply to industries which agrees with my proposal.this is how we are going to conquer entire farm sector and makes everyone happier and healthier.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Firstly a website is builded&search forinvestors and also we take some loan and then we will start an ofline store named ECO-BUY in which DFARMc will be of 70% occypancy and rest will be of the main products which are used by the people day to day life. This concept of ECO-BUY is because we cannot run a store with airconditioners and staff for only farm products(because all the day consumers will not come for farm products) on the other hand if we have some other products including farm products customers will come all the day so that we will not end up in lossess. since everyone coulnt use phone even though there is an app we are planned to start offline store.this store will be placed in most populated city and we will make deal with all the nearest possible farmers to sell their products.i am going to start two solorized trucks which collects farm products from farmers from their place(which is going to be helpful for farmers by avoiding their transportaion cost which is required for them to transport products to market place) and brought to store.based on online orders employees will pack accordingly and keep aside and remaining excess products willbe kept in racks so that visitors can buy prouducts. slowly with the profits obtained we start another store and this continues throughout the country.farm based industries, exports and people in country will be the financing source. farmers, government of india, other product industrialists and farm based industries will be our collaborators.later on we will start technological office in which we employe all streamed enginneers from which we will direct farmers to increase productivity and quality by introducing new technologies, new machines,new fertiizers.Though initial cost is high to make everyone avail this facility it is unavoidable.
Iam k.rajesh 21years old completed graduation in mechanical. i am a kind of guy who will always think about others happiness and search for own happiness in that.the main motivation in thinking of this idea is from my parents and relatives.weare a below middle classed family and we will always discuss about the growing costs of all kinds of products and my father couldnt even afford to buy all the required products. on the other hand my relatives are farmers who are selling thier products at low cost and even they coulnt earn money. i am confused that we consumers couldnt buy products at high cost and these farmers were selling at lowcost, how this difference took place? with this doubt i started looking into it and realized that products were gettingexchanced between several dealers and each and everyone want profit and finally we are getting products at high cost.to make both consumers and farmers happy igot this idea and i am sure will get ssuccess.i am not thatfond of money from this i can say that i wont be taking huge profits,and can manage people easily.i completed campus ambassador and social ambassador with iim-B and qrius respectively.
