The Story.

Innovator(s)

This pitch is an example from our initial beta test competitions. The funding amount and contributions are not actual numbers. The team and submission are real though. Create your own goal and your backers will support it! This pitch story is included below...

The library team. This is an organization that helps young children nature their talents and gives children the opportunity to use their talents to make a profit. It is transparent, innovative and educative and does not discriminate against race or disabilities or culture or religion. The library gives vulnerable children learning opportunities and capacity to continue education no matter the circumstances. The library also helps disadvantaged or discriminated or abused children share their stories and fight for their rights.

Problem

The problem I aim to tackle is malnutrition which is affecting many poor people.

Solution

By producing eggs for sale on a large scale. Eggs are a good cheap source of protein and this will help local communities.

Target Market

I aim at helping the poor and needy in society and therefore, they are my main target market but it doesn't end there. I also aim for people of all types in terms of financial stability and income. Many people in zambia buy eggs almost everyday and I think this is a very promising target market.

Societal Impact

With successful launch ant implimentation of my project, I would be selling a large quantity of eggs at berry affordable prices for all and as I mentioned, this will help alleviate not only malnutrition but also hunger.

Next Steps

In my pitch, I mention that I have only a few layers and that I need to expand my business. I need a facility (chicken coops and brooders) to house all my poultry and necessities such as chicken feed, feeders, drinkers and more chickens to increase my egg production. All this can be achieved by funding for me to source all required materials locally and successfully expand the business.

Reflection

What went well is that it was quite easy to source labor by hiring locals and this helped them by providing them with a job. Raising the chicks is not much of a problem as well because they don't need as much space as the bigger and older chickens. The problems I face are the load shedding schedule we experience here in zambia and this leads to power outages for even up to 2 days and this negativity affects the hatching of the eggs as there is no power to the incubator and in turn completely disturbs the hatching process. This has led to decreases in chick production from time to time. The power outages also affect the chicks as there is need to power the heat lamps in the brooders.
