Summary of your idea
It is my vision to own a cassava flour processing factory but first I need to start from the base by cultivating cassava and fresh tomatoes in a semi mist intensive plantation to raise fund for the factory and cassava tubers as an input.This conceive idea will cover the period of five years before its final objective is attain and will be divided in to phases and segments respectively.There will be three phases;two years for phase one over 40 hectares of land,two years for phase two over 60 hectares and phase three will be the planting of the factory at the 5th year.Also, the phases will be sub divided in to segments,for instant in phase one, cassava will cover 30 hectares with three segment of ten hectares each while tomato will cover ten hectares with two segment of five hectares each.At the end of phase two cassava would have covered 75 hectares and tomato 25 hectares.The benefit for this project are to create employment opportunities for youths,instigate emulation amongst youths,satisfy domestic markets with flour and export and create a market of cassava tuber for local farmers.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Just as I have mention above,my goal is to construct the biggest cassava flour processing factory in Cameroon with a capacity of 50000 to 70000 bags of flour per year and of course more than 50 per cent of input will come from the farm.This project will be best carried out in south west region of Cameroon precisely around Tiko,Moyuka,Ekona OR Buea since there are already existing plantation there like CDC banana and rubber plantations.These areas have the best climate for agriculture,volcanic soil,available land,water sources and a tarred road.Here,it will be easier to borrow some farm equipments like tractors,vehicles and farm techniques.The success of this project depend on the start,it is my opinion that as long as this project commences it will meet all its objectives given my plans to execute and my management skills.A staff made up of different people from different tribes will help reduce tribal conflicts and ensure diversity in culture.My staff will be more of youths of both sexes but pillared by elderly as guiders.Every step of this idea is an incentive to youths and give them a sense of self employment.It will ensure a greenish environment as well as it can be a source of energy and there will be a two way trade between the idea and the farmers and the market targeted.I will like to use this project to encourage farmers to form a roots and tubers trade union with the main objective of maintaining farm to market roads and make available quality farm inputs for quality products.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Here,I will like to share the estimated budget for this idea,its market and sources of finance. Phase 1;budget time line, estimated cost, Execution period respectively. purchase of land ; 7 million(14000dollas) November. clearing/cleaning; 1000000(2000dollas) December,January. purchase/hiring of equipment; 5000000(10000dollas) January,February. Tilling/planting; 2000000(4000dollas) March,April,May. Witting/manure/fertilizer; 2000000(4000dollas) may,June,August. Harvesting/transportation; 1500000(3000dollas) July,August,February,March. Total 18500000(37000dollas) This estimated budget will be revised after phase one.I intend to produce 10000 tons of cassava per year and 3000 tons of tomatoes a year with a work force of 250 to 300 staffs after phase three.Cassava and tomato have a high internal demand for consumption,for making Maggi bouillon cubes,for producing beer and Joice,Liquor,animal food,bread and Bio fuel.My targets are all restaurants preparing "water fufu","Nkumkum",Garri made out of cassava as well as fresh tomato source,NESTLE,Guinness SA,Bakeries beginning from south west. EBACUDA my village development association has opted to purchase the land,the micro finance by name SUMEDANG is reviewing this project on their next board meeting but the manager has assured me of finance.The start of this idea will be finance at family level.Due to the interesting nature of the idea my eider brother a civil servant has obtain a loan for me of 3000000 from their "ngangi" house and we are ready to go come November.
