Project Proposal - Bakery
Douglas's son at the local market selling the bread.
My name is Chanda Douglas. I am a Zambian aged 33 years and married with 8 Children inclusive of double orphaned children whom I have adopted because my 2 brothers died due to Hiv/Aids.
I am in bakery business. I am using my home and I have been using my home and I have been baking since 1998 to support my family. However I fail to make ends meet because my capital is insufficient i.e. the equipment and ingredients are not enough to meet my customers' demands. I use an improvised oven as on Photo which uses a lot of charcoal and my hands to mix. I have tried to source for fund to buy equipment through working here and there but I have failed.
I want to open my own bakery because I enjoy baking and I can support my family through this business, if only I can source funds.
I have found a central place in a border town in my country where there is no bakery and it is very busy with people buying and selling clothes e.t.c. It's a trading place for countries like Congo DR, Tanzania, Malawi and my Country Zambia. I surveyed and found that there is a great demand for Bakery products and I will not have competitors as people there have no interest in bakery business.
I would like to buy equipment like:
|1x industrial Oven||K 20,000,000.00|
|1X INDSTRIAL MIXER||K 10,000,000.00|
|1X DEEP FRYER||K 5,000,000.00|
|1X FOOD WARMER||K 1,200,000.00|
|1X DEEP FREEZER||K 3,000,000.00|
|1X BREAD SLICER||K 2,500,000.00|
|1X STEEL BAKERY TABLES||K 2,000,000.00|
|8. 1X COOKER||K 2,000,000.00|
|And other small accessories e.g. wrapping plastic phoning bags, baking |
Trays, scales Knives
The ingredients I would need are as follows:
|a) 100X||50Kg FLOUR||K15,000,000.00|
|b) 10X||20Kg YEAST||K 7,500,000.00|
|c) 40X||2Kg BAKING POWDER||K 800,000.00|
|d) 5X||50Kg ICING SUGAR||K 750,000.00|
|e) 5X||50Kg SUGAR||K 750,000.00|
|f) 5X||50Kg SALT||K 250,000.00|
|g) 10X||25Kg FAT||K 2,500,000.00|
|Food colours and flavors||K 500,000.00|
|Rent of Building 1 year||K 12,000,000.00|
The approximate loan would be K the total above. I plan to pay back this loan in 3 years in K83,000,000 installments because I know I will be baking not less than K10,000,000 per month. I will employ 9 workers to help me run this business.
(NOTE: The total for Douglas' proposal is approximately $25,000 USD)
