Please describe the goal of your initiative; outline what you are trying to achieve
Long Term: The Scrap for Life Project envisions a clean community that focuses on managing its wastes to help the environment, and giving back to the community through the use of these wastes as a finance vehicle towards progress and development.
If you selected 'other' above, please specify which other barriers to financial inclusion you solution seeks to address:
For which underserved or excluded communities will your solution create access to valuable, affordable, secure and comprehensive financial services?
Scraps will be sourced in cities, and ones the scraps has been converted into funds, the funds will be directed to less developed areas or remote places for investment.
Could your solution work in other geographies or regions? If so, where?
Yes, waste has been around long since the industrial revolution, and managing it has been hard for some developing countries and underdeveloped countries to do.
If your solution is dramatically successful, how will things be different in 10 years?
It's idealistic to say that zero waste, and zero unemployment and successful business growth. But in 10 years the effect would be stable because there is a system that seeks opportunity and provides for those who doesn't. Thus, organization and systematic way towards growth and progress.
What will have had to have changed to make this happen?
Self Realization, Motivation and Initiative.
What has been the impact of your solution to date?
As of now, there is little impact yet to the community but has been acting on the project by house to house, through friends. By this information and people already aware of the managing of waste program will be more motivated as to give them more meaning for managing their scraps and donate it as part of their environment social responsibility.
What is your projected impact over the next five years?
Minority will do the project, and the same project will prosper with different objectives, and the minority will influence the majority to be aware of project.
What barriers might hinder the success of your project? How do you plan to overcome them?
Companies and household participation and cooperation. With this challenge, moving one step at a time by being consistent with works through visiting the sources every week would be a good start to campaign that this project is serious in helping them and the environment towards development and progress.
