Write a business plan and prepare a financial budget

Status: Finished
Step: 
3

The Village wants to start to generate income through farming (poultry, goats, piggery) and vegetable growing. Help the village to finalise the business plan and to assess its strengths and weaknesses. The financial budget should contain the initial costs of purchase as well as the expected profits and their expected evolution.
Wakitaka has an initial budget of 1000USD that should now be invested as profitable as possible. Any accounting and business specialists, you are more than welcome to give advice.

Emmanuel-

Do you need copies of different business plan templates? I would recommend as a first step that you meet together as a group to do some brainstorming on the SWOT analysis I posted about in the other task. I think it is really important that you work together with the youth and make them active participants in the business planning process. Each section of the plan you could work on together, and then post here for comments on what you come up with so that we could help guide you.

I know you mentioned earlier that there is no cooperative formed at this time. Do you plan on doing that in the future? Who would the business plan be for? A specific organization that will function as an "umbrella" for the youths who run the poultry/goat farms? How do you envision this?

Re: Protect the Children of South Africa and World Over

Subject: 3 year old girl & 9-month-old baby raped.

Last week a 3 year old girl in South Africa was beaten and raped. She is
still alive. The man responsible was released on bail yesterday.
He is walking the streets . If you are too busy to read this then just sign
your name and forward this on.
This is a very important petition. It is an essential part of the justice
system for children. You may have already heard that there's a myth in South
Africa that having sex with a virgin will cure AIDS . The younger the
virgin, the more potent the cure. This has led to an epidemic of rapes by
infected males, with the correspondent infection of innocent kids. Many have
died in these cruel rapes.

Recently in Cape Town , a 9-month-old baby was raped by 6 men.

Please think about that for a moment. The child abuse situation is now
reaching catastrophic proportions and if we don't do something, then who
will?

Kindly add your name to the bottom of the list and please pass this on to as
many people as you know.

If you are signature no.: 1000 - please forward the mail-list to
childprotectpca@saps.org.za

Please don't be complacent, do something about the kids of South Africa ..

You can make a difference. That child is fighting for life. This is just 1
of the million cases of child abuse, so please pledge your support and help
keep CPU (CHILD PROTECTION UNIT) open. Please give your support to the
petition and ensure that it goes to as many people as possible.

Please don't just leave it, make a difference. In order to write your name
copy this message and paste it in a new mail (compose). Or click on forward
and add your name to the list and send it on to others.
Again, if you are number 1000 please send this to:
childprotectpca@saps.org.za

Emma,

This a great document and really outlines the project and the main objectives. I have made some comments that could improve and some suggested changes to the layout/ sentences.

Happy to discuss any of the changes privately if my comments don't make sense. My main point would be to look at the detail you have included and question whether it builds the picture of Waitaka for the person reading it. If it does not then should it be included.

Again a great document which i'm sure will bring us success.

Many thanks

Andy

Hi Emmanuel,

I just found this very useful document from one of the neighbours of Koliyonkulam. It explains how to calculate a profit of a good. As Tanja I think that the youths should try to do as much as they can by their own. This could be a good opportunity for the youths to learn how to manage their budget. Do they have some knowledge of this, or would they be interested in receiving some training and to learn it?
