Explain your project in details:

This project is to promote our local palm oil through creativity and innovative packaging and also to promote healthy living through the consumption of the palm oil.Also to liberate the people of my community from abject poverty within 5 years from the day I start my plantation. The oil palm tree is one of the most useful trees ever known because all the parts of it are useful. The fruits are processed into palm oil and palm kernel oil, the leaves (fronds) are used for roofing houses in rural areas and camps, and the sap (palm wine) is a refreshing drink taken in parts of Africa. Palm oil is red in colour and is used for domestic cooking in many countries. It is also used industrially in the production of soaps and cosmetics. Palm kernel oil, which is extracted from the same fruits, is also used for soaps and cosmetics production. Presently, my community has a lot of fertile lands, and good portions for these lands contain naturally germinated oil palms. The unfortunate thing here is that the yielding of these naturally germinated oil palms is very poor to the extent that the people of the community do not see oil palms as anything that can bring sustainable income. This situation has made 80% of the people of the community to live in abject poverty. Two hectares of land will be purchased for this plantation. To ensure planting the species of oil palm that will give the highest yield, the seedlings will be purchased from the Nigerian Institute for Oil Palm Research (NIFOR). Ten casual workers Is employed to clear the land, uproot every plant, mark the land, do the planting, maintain the plantation every three months, apply fertilizer, harvest the ripe fruits.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

However, when I start harvesting from my plantation after two years, I will educate the people of my community with practical examples about the different species of oil palm, and they will see for themselves the need to do away with the poor local specie of oil palm. At this point, I will nurse the best species of oil palm seedlings, and distribute them to all in my community, and everyone will join me to make sustainable income from palm fruits (palm oil). From my analyses, 8 to 10 tonnes of palm oil will be harvested from this plantation yearly and can be sold at 2,800,000.00 3,500,000.00 Naira, equivalent to USD $14,231.20 USD $17,766.50. Create massive job both direct and indirect in the factory, marketing and sales of the produced products. Especially, the project is already employed 15 persons directly as the factory workers and sales personnel and more than 25 persons indirectly. The village women who help in selecting the fresh palm fruits which forms the raw material for this project is directly employed. She makes money with which they buy food items for the family, pay children's school fees, and take care of the medical bills of the immediate family. The youths in the community who clear the land, uproot every plant, mark the land, do the planting, maintain the plantation every three months, apply fertilizer, harvest the ripe fruits and transport the fruits to the already existing palm oil processing factory for processing into palm oil also indirectly employed. Provide nutritional food through unadulterated, well package palm oil and in a well clean and hygienic environment that will help them to cook and live a healthy life through packaging the product in more hygienic environment with the right percentage of 2% free fat acid.

Hello Esu

Your project is good. However, i think you still need to improve on your traction (impact of your enterprise on sustainability development); for any ongoing project, as Entrepreneurs; traction is like our success story and shows our progress and also has a positive impact on investors to be and we your clients / customers. Providing statistical evidence will be a good edge against selection criteria. Best of luck

hello Esu,
This is really wonderful idea. You have the resources already, what is lacking is the processing firm. you need to sensitize the locals about the nitty gritties of palm trees so that they know their usefulness. Many people in the rural set up simply want to be jump-started. When they see it in your way you will have bigger success. congratulations.
Please, read about my innovation and vote as well as comment on it too.

Why do starts ups in the developing world fail?
The economic environment is not favorable especially the high taxes imposed on start-ups by the African Governments. It would be of great economic value if African entrepreneurs are given some exemptions of certain taxes for a particular period.

Business development may be difficult to define concisely, but it can be easily understood using a working concept. An open mindset, willingness for an honest and realistic self-assessment, and the ability to accept failures are a few of the skills needed for successful business development. Beyond the ideation, implementation, and execution of a business development idea, the end results matter the most.
The brightest minds in business development should be ready to accommodate change in order to achieve the best results. Every approval or disapproval is a learning experience, better preparing these professionals for the next challenge.
