For each selection, please explain the financial and non-financial support from each
Friends and family
We do not recognize building a business on family and friends with limited financial capabilities and investment objectives that may differ greatly according to personal goals and progress life.
Investment is strongly supported by partners investing in time and other resources to projects.
Proposals were sent and are in the consideration process.
We plan to work with NGO to promote initiative. Some have excellent network but with limited budget to support the initiative.
Typically for garment factories and other mass employment Organizations. Some are concerned with quality housing for their workers. More need to explore.
Regional government & National government
Very expensive to work with and time consuming with little or no interest in development. Mostly involved in force evictions with many related serious issues.
Our prime target and source of income to deliver housing. We focus on farmers to start and city dwellers who for most are family related in province to supply straw. Our initiative is to lean on city dwellers to introduce and grow business by opportunity introduction.
Micro Finance & Banks
More need to explore to rise finance at Fund level and obtain co-investment for medium to large projects.
How do you plan to grow and/or diversify your base of support in the next three years?
The growth will be very rapid after erecting demonstration house. We may cooperate with private investors to replicate initiative to new locations to cope with housing demands. Fund offers co-investment 70% fund and 30% private in new business structure. 5, 10, 20 tons bio-digesters can be installed anywhere in Cambodia, preferably near paddy rice for ease of transport.
Year two, bio-digesters may need an upgrade to process more material. We shall introduce erosion control product made from rice straw for river and lake benches preservation.
We forecast a compost peak demand of critical growth in year three. Compost volume offered will reach most of the demands and price will start to decrease. This is the signal for our Organization to invest into straw panel manufacturing plant and develop new and innovative products.
