1. Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that led the founder(s) to get started or the story of how you saw the potential for this project to succeed.

The founder of Mian environment organization declared that the cashew sector will create 50,000 jobs in Chad by 2021 thanks to the 3,000,000 plants that will be planted and then maintained. According to Mian-Hingam Sauria, cashew is used in the manufacture of aircraft tires, brake fluids, organic pesticides, cosmetics and in the food industry. This why, he considers the cashew sectors as green oil in order to become the lever of the Chadian economy by promoting the products of the cashew trees for local consumption and export. This idea urge me to make a difference by reacting on Environnmental impact action and general farming.

2. The problem: What problem are you helping to solve?

Employability and financial capability both go in pairs, the government of Chad faced a serious problem of youngs employment. Chadian’s adults people are poors meaning lack of financial capability. The problem is still around because there is lack of motivation, commitment, creativity and initiative, most people lie on the government public service, they are not eager to create their own business.

3. Your solution: How are you working to solve this problem? Share your specific approach.

These two problems need to be solved. Our organization will help to solve this problem by: -Producing 12,000 plants including 5,000 cashew trees and 7,000 other plants. -Employing 1000 young people to reduce the number of unemployed young people. -Creating of micro-businesses for the local population by promoting the initiative of local groups. -Helping vulnerable women, students and poor people by giving them credits (products) to start their micro-businesses. -Satisfying food self-sufficiency. -Creating a clean and healthy environment for the local community -Investing in the creation of school premises with project revenues. -Engaging in the development and implementation of poverty reduction strategies. -Using the land with improved local seeds such as: peanuts, millets, cotton and others and varying the areas exploited annually to set aside and maintaining the fertility of the land. -Encouraging the Chadian state to set up a fruit juice production plant.

4. Innovation: How are you innovating or using unique approaches to solve the problem?

We are innovating by scaling the Project and by varying the strategies and opening a big business center around the World. We are open and eager to deal with any instition for sharing methods , models and technologies of cutting edges.

We considere product, process and business model innovations as our key frameworks.

5. Collaboration: How does your initiative seek to bring key players together to preserve biodiversity?

Actually, the organization is about to grow at its scaling phase, therefore; only 25 women are now beneficiaries of the organization products for their financial health. We plan to expand this chance for any needy person in the nearest future.

6. Impact: how has your project made a difference so far — in terms of both business outputs and social impact? How do you plan on measuring progress?

It developed the skills of 10 young people by planting , irrigating of plants and its daily labor activities.
