Explain your project in details:
In my society there is poor student transportation system, there is no school buses for government schools which led students wake up early and face different disturbances while looking for buses. We Mwanafunzi Transport Empire (M.T.E) will provide buses to students only. At the beginning we will partner with private buses owners and rent buses and later on we will be capable of buying our own buses. In spite of providing buses we will ensure security to students. We develop a system where student will use card for transaction and after scanning parents will receive notification in terms of location and time student use our service. We are only company which having this system. We will use school meetings and different media to reach our customers. Our customers will register their children online and at our office. Once registered student will receive card for transaction and security.
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
Mwanafunzi Transport Empire will lead to many positive impacts on sustainable development. Students will no longer late to school, will improve students performance, will reduce danger to students like robbery and rape attacks, will bring curiosity of studying science studies, will reduce school dropout and early pregnancies and will improve mental and psychological stability
Sustainability and future plans
Students will pay for service through mobile money monthly or per term, which will ensure stability of our company. Our market is of about 930,000 students but our target is to provide service to 1000 students for the first year and increase the number of our customer to the next year. During the first year we will make profit of USD 10000 and increase our profit at rate of 30% next year.
