Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Business Impact: The impact of this business is in our bid to support the Sustainable Development Goal 2 (SDG 2) which aims to end hunger, ensure food security and improve nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture, by 2030. Adopting this policy as an entrepreneur in the aspect of agribusiness motivated us to see the business as a means of food provision for all, including the workers working for us, and consumers of our products. It therefore implies that this business is blessing majorly two sets of people- the workers who are regularly paid for job done, and the consumers who enjoy our products. For job creation in relation to Nigeria, this business is currently providing a means of living to about twenty-five beneficiaries (indirectly impacting twenty-five families) who depend on our business to pay them monthly. If the needed resources avail, we intend to increase our work force to benefit the community and country at large, and permanent some skilled workers who are currently on either casual or part-time agreement. With respect to social development, as a developing business, we have not been able to do much to people's expectations, but the little that benefits both parties. Present Return on Investment isn't that alarming but encouraging. And to reduce our interest payment on loans, we at most times roll over our profits. Doing this reduces the amount of loan we go for, at our next production The metrics and Key Performing Indicators (KPIs) below remain our yardsticks in evaluating our success: - Customer Acquisition - Customer Engagement - Customer Retention - Revenue - Cost - Gross Margin Percentage - Contribution Margin - Burn Rate - runway

Sustainability and future plans

Current Milestone: We have successfully registered our services in the minds of livestock vendors, retailers, & farmers in two states.. and have researched into other aspects of agribusiness with the intent of introducing same in due time. Majorly, we have been able to reduce but not totally eradicate hunger within our community. Next Milestone: We are working on expanding in our field of know. With hard work and luck, we intend taking this business to a global height of competition within the next 3-5 years. We are also working on increasing our work force by employing more permanent staff (experts) anytime soon. Revenue Model: Our means of income includes... - table sized fishes sales, - smoking and packaging of cat fishes for sale presently locally, but aim going international soon (being one of our next milestones), - sale of poultry products. To ensure reduction in the cost of purchasing pullets and other day old chicks, we intend starting our own hatchery any sooner. Marketing Strategy: Before now, we've been marketing our products via several social media groups we belong to. And as a business owner, I go as far as sourcing for product supply contracts with government agencies and some other private establishments, like supplying chickens, eggs, or snails to eateries. Our integrity markets us.

Hello young entrepreneur,
Farming is the backbone of African nations. I like that you are into it. Additionally, I think if you became mobile, you could achieve more. You cannot turn the whole whole world to farm, but you can have farmers from various parts of the world. Simply go help them plant on their farms or rear their livestock at a fee.
My project is on crochet shoes, come here and help me write a better project. You already have my vote. I hope you will return the favour https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/24/13531
