2.   DETAILLED PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT 

Objective of the project

General

Establishment of pastures to breed feed plants to generate an income for the initiators

Specific

     Produce & multiply seeds of different feed plants
     Establishing of permanent pastures (dry soil)
     Improvement of the feed plants quality
     Creation of employment for young people

3.  JUSTIFICATION OF THE PROJECT 

The region was confronted with several problems, as traumas, youngsters with HIV/AIDS, on top of problems of psychological nature. Since the beginning of 2006, the region couldn’t avoid to end up in debts because of decrease of offered help by some silent partners.
The usage as well as the expenses although kept on increasing remarkable wit hall negative consequences.

In solve this situation of financial dependency the promoters/initiators have developed a ‘reproduction project’ to justify received subsidies. This project is the establishment of pastures for feed plants for cattle in conformity with the national policy that obliges all stock breeders to follow the system of modern stockbreeding and demands the use of better fertilizers to optimize the result. Taking into account the situation in the district, as there are a lot of stock breeders the most important problem is the inadequacy of pastures.

Starting from the modern technique of planting and taking into account the food needs of the cattle in our district, we want establish a pasture of 6ha of which 4ha sheer and 2ha tripsacum.

The choice of these feed plants originates from the fact that the two chosen categories adapt to for Kigali applying weather circumstances and moreover would survive longer periods without rain.

This pasture belongs to the rustic district of large Kigali. We want to rent the areas and the income from this project will contribute to the implementation of the daily activities of the local population; the financial tensions will diminish because of this.

The financing question is one-off at start up; after the first functioning year the project will be self-maintainable.

6.  PROFITABILITY OF THE PROJECT

        

The profitability of this project is expected 8 month after start.
Concerning the cultivation: one renews the planting after 3 years, therefore the expenses reduce year by year.
One cuts the grasses for the cattle 3 times a year. 1 hectare grass costs 300.000RwFr. (every time). One cuts and harvests 6 ha (=1.800.000RwFr) 3 times i.e. 5.400.000 RwFr/year.

We also consider selling the seeds to external farmers.
The forecasted profit = 600.000 RwFr/year

This gives a total of 5.400.000 RwFr + 600.000 RwFr  =  6.000.000 RwFr

7.  EXPECTED RESULT

At the end of the project:

  • Increasing source of income
  • Decreasing financial problems
  • Employment for youngsters in the district

8.  RISK

The target aimed for would not be reached in case of lack of external financial means.

9.  CONSEQUENCE

The consequence of the district is drastically decrease the financial dependency towards external partners because due to this project the monthly source of income will increase. n.

10. FOLLOW-UP & EVALUATION

The promoter/initiator does a detailed follow-up of the project and provides the silent partner with enough information. He will send a report per quartile towards the silent partner.

The silent partner will regularly evaluate the project, while it is ongoing and at the end.
