Summary of your idea
In a community where the people are mainly farmers, land availability, water availability, wood availability, large market, unemployed youth and women, the idea is to build and instal a multipurpose mill covering oil palm mill, palm kernel mill, crushing mill, refinery and cash crops processing plants with a vision to grow into where everything needed for the mill will be developed by the company which includes, fabrication of equipment and machines, production of packaging materials like plastics e.t.c
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The idea will ensure that all the farming crops produced by the local farmers in the community and its environment are bought as raw materials and processed into marketable, consumable and usable products. It will bring development to the community by affecting the market positively, providing employment and attracting investors and government to the community as well as mechanizing the system of agriculture in the area and also ensuring large production and output.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Fund can be gotten from banks, government initiatives, investors and self for the building of the mill and plants as well as required items. For starting, raw materials can be purchased from the farmers on part payment as the full payment will be after production and sales. Since the business in to be located in a village where land, water, woods, farm products and other required materials are easily available, the fund required will not much.
I was born to a family where my father runs a local palm oil mill and I have experiences in the running of the mill. He made profit as that was the source of income to the family but he was doing it in a small and local way. In the business, nothing is lost, everything is money. I equally did a one year industrial training in a multipurpose agro processing mill. I studied engineering and I have vast knowledge of machine fabrication, production, installation, troubleshooting and repairs. I equally took a course on business management.
