Problem: What problem is this initiative trying to address?
Undernutrition problem calls for concern especially in Africa due to affordability and accessibility by an average or low income earner, hence many children are undernourished and lack access to the right diet in most rural areas in Nigeria and Africa at large.
The context of our project is to address and provide solutions in form of food supply at affordable rates.
Solution Summary: What is the proposed solution? What do you see as its most promising aspects for creating shared value?
The kind of agricultural inputs and supplies are well improved, disease resistance and high yield which enhance economies of scales and afford us to be able to sell at affordable rates.
We get our food products or farm produce to consumers and end users through a cheaper means of transportation in collaboration with local transporters.
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Specify both the social and the environmental impact of your work
There is provision of employment for locals and allocation of production is fast becoming a food basket and agricultural hub, hence turning a locality into a commercially viable environment.
Summary of production between 2013 and 2016:
2013, Total Egg Supply is 2000 (two thousand) crates- Contribution to protein supply
2014, Total Supply of Poultry Products (chicken meat) is 150 tons- Contribution to protein supply
2015, Total Supply of Maize is 1000 (one thousand) tons- Contribution to supply of carbohydrate
2016, Total Supply of Cassava is 35 (thirty-five) tons- Contribution of carbohydrate
Financial sustainability plan: How is this initiative financially supported? How will you ensure its financial sustainability long-term?
Our financial sustainability plan has enjoyed supports from individual donations from family and friends who believe in our vision and some are partly shareholders, we are also proposing for grants from agricultural support and developmental organisation within and outside the country.
Revenue drive through sales and marketing of our products has proven to be one of the main sustainability plan in the long run.
Unique value proposition: What makes your initiative innovative? How does your project differ from other organizations working in the same field?
Our organisation provides employment for locals and also train others on innovative agricultural production.
In addition, we also provide food nutrition/security for the teeming challenged undernourished population.
Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.
The passion for farming and production of food crops for the teeming population of my country brought about the initiative of Luwemimo farms Enterprises.
The organisation was founded in 2013 and started operation through the supply of poultry products. We made progress by delving into other areas of agriculture which are root crop (cassava) and maize grains production and supplies.
Our organisation deals in food production or supply of nourishment and we aspire to expand and achieve financial sustainability, hence applying for the 2018 Creating Shared Value Prize.
