TSG (The Smart Granary)
Explain your idea in details:
TSG is a project that will allow farmers to keep their stocks much longer so that will save them time eventually to sell their products through the automatic ventilation and sprinkler system when the temperature is Unfavorable. So my project will allow them to document the risk of fires as there are fire extinguishing systems as well as a lighting system built into the attic to improve safety. And the whole thing is powered with solar energy that will guarantee the autonomy and the availability of the device. In addition, a cloud platform will be behind to control sensor data. Indeed even if there is system failure, the platform will ensure tracking and remotely trigger the system. For the outlook I have planned a tracking system to locate the stolen products that growers are experiencing and control the stock management.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Why do producers need a product CONSERVATION system? Agricultural production and its flow is: A contribution to Africa's GDP A contribution to food security We notice three impacts: Impacts: **Economic :-Increase in profitability-selling prices of accessible fruits and vegetables-Modernisation and automation of agriculture **Social :-Decrease in the number of deaths due to various product poisonings -improved safety and health at work -no need to buy lithium batteries **Environmental :-Durable products -preserving agricultural balance
Plans for implementation and sustainability
I have two business model the first with a monthly subscription due to 50euro or a sale of the device at 1200 euro. It seems a little paradoxical that the device requires such a sum while the farmer is generally poor so let me tell you that there are many organizations that help the growers so I planned to meet them in order to Find the financing for my project to put it to term, their "offer" devices for a first time and I will exercise a purchasing power towards them that is to say that when they boost their savings they reimburse me. With the labeling of the Ministry of Agriculture and Trade I'll expand my digital market. and B2B actions that I'll lead myself. I will create my dream team for implementing my project. My team will be composed by a developer, a marketer, an expert in IOT, a salesman to sell my devices. **Potential key partners: -Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock -Ministry of Health -Ministry of Trade -farmers **Cost Structure :-Purchase of Equipment -communication costs-labor **Resources: -State subsidies -monthly farmers ' Contribution -fund research at NGO
I am the idea owner and i have 21 yeras old.I work in the world of ICT. I like the innovation in the field of IOT. I love digital solutions and I would love to be part of the 10 finalists to finish among the winners in order to have the skills of an entrepreneur to my projects. I'm the CEO of BOS (Buil Our Security) who won the Price Rose Dieng Kuntz of the Egovlabchallenge 2017 organized for the first time in Senegal (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96dbjUJgux8). I was also winner of the hackathon Jiggencitic 2017 with the same project BOS . I am also the Miss Geek Senegal and the 2nd miss geek Africa from the Africa Summit 2018 Transform, which was held in Kigali in May and I won with this project The Smart Granary (http://www.esmt.sn/fr/ndeye-fatou-mboup-lpti3-gagne-la-2eme-place-du-concours-msgeekafrica) (https://www.facebook.com/jiftic/posts) (https://twitter.com/Macky_Sall/status/994922820827340806). Also I worked on a project Rangbidiekhna which reduces the long lines related to the technical visit to automobiles. And finally I had a fireman drone with my SOF(Switch Off Fire) project that allows to do the first aid skills during a fire and show the fastest path to the fire fighters to the scene of fire. And all the projects that I had to work with the IOT, the cloud and solar energy to ensure the autonomy and the availability of the device with a really data safe. This is to show that these are projects that solve the problems of Senegal. In this way you will understand that I'd like to be an entrepreneur in digital that will help the world to solve the problems they face.
