The Carrot Production Business Plan by Patrick Carpen
Mission Statement: To be the biggest producer and marketer of organically grown carrots and other similar products in Guyana.
Vision Statement: In five years I envision that our production area would be multiplied by five, our assets would be multiplied by five and our human resources would be enjoy increased salaries and benefits.
Background: The availability of rich, fertile river sand, rice mill ash and cow manure makes a healthy soil combination on which carrots and other crops would thrive. A sample bed is in process and pictures will be uploaded soon. The high demand for carrots in the Rupununi, as well as neighboring Brazilian cities of Bom Fim and Normandia, combined with the total absence of carrot production in the region make carrot production the ideal venture. On that of that, markets are available in Georgetown for export purposes.
Finance: We are attracting investors on an “invite-only” basis to buy shares of the business. One share costs 1000 USD and entitles you to 1% of the net profit of the business per year.* The estimated net profit of the business per year is 100,000 USD, so one share is estimated to produce 1000 USD per share, each year.
Criteria for investors: In order to be able to invest in this project, you must have received a personal invitation from a person who was already accepted for investment or the coordinator of the project, Patrick Carpen. As a rule we are currently only inviting investment money from working professionals.
