My name is Jean Stanislas MILONGO. I am from Congo Brazzaville and graduated in financial economics. As a financial economist I advised the customers, performed various desk-work and groomed the payroll system. In my spare time I did volunteer work with the disabled, street children and the elderly. Now I live in the Netherlands and I work in the health care sector. Further in my experiences during a trip to West Africa, I have bought a piece of land to bild an orphanage. In the village Abéné in the province of Casamance in Sénégal, ROSANGELANKIE Foundation was founded in 2008 by Jean Stanislas MILONGO, who along with a few motivated volunteers, the building of an orphanage in Abéné (Senegal). The goal is to make the children care and education so that they can develop into independent adults who a good social life. The orphanage is primarily meant to the orphan children from Abené village and the surrounding an wich the grandparents can relieve their often far too heavy task. Our project is therefore also particularly important, because there is nothing else in this part of Senegal in the field of care for children. As you understand, there is a lot of money to the construction of the orphanage. And if the orphanage there once, come to that the costs for the maintenance of the buildings, the learning materials for the school and the fee for the people who go to work. That's why I decided to build up a bakery in addition to this project, this project is so important in this part of Senegal because there nothing for the population. JUSTIFICATION CONTEXT The village of ABENE, with about 5,000 residents, is centred around 12 villages by the names of Colomba BANDJIKAKI, DIANA, NIAFRAN, ALBADAR, DIANAKABADA, KABADIO, DJIDENE, BANTANKELE, KEROUANE, KAFOUTINE and the islands. This cluster of villages totals a population of more than 50,000 inhabitants and constitutes basic elements of the natural region of Casamance which offers to this area all its personality, dignity and natural grandeur in terms of culture, social aspects and tourism. In fact the natural region of Casamance, situated in the southern part of of Senegal, is composed of the regions Ziguinchor, Kolda and Sédhiou. In the economic respect the ABENE cluster has potentialities at its disposal in the different economic sectors. It is an essentially agricultural area thanks to its good rainfall profile. Agriculture is essentially traditional and centered on rice production. On the other hand the ABENE area has tree-growing land at its disposal: forestry resources which appear as important trumps in satisfying the needs of the population in matters of nutrition security and rural development. Fisheries benefit from advantageous natural conditions favouring sustainable human growth. Thus in the dynamics of setting up an orphanage complex fitting within the context of the battle against hunger and poverty, the Foundation has elaborated the present project for a bakery, whose constituents are given in the following. Objective: The project aims at providing bread to the population and its environment. This effectively contributes to raising the level of nutrition of the village, which remains poorly fed in terms of supply of nutrients. This action aims at covering 12 villages in the medium term. All of the natural advantages, plus its picturesque sites and its rich and varied folklore make the ABENE area a site of strong touristic vocation. However, its socio-economical development is badly hampered by the armed conflict that has been raging here for around thirty years. To confront this socio-economic situation, the ROSANGELANKIE Foundation has initiated a humanitarian programme aimed at participation in the socio-economical development of the area. For the foundation, in the context of its strategic orientations, it is a matter of participating in boosting the competitiveness of the local economy and installing a bakery in the village to accompany the orphanage. SPECIFIC GOALS 01 To produce 3,480 baguettes per day, to cover the needs of the populations, the tourists and the fishermen living in ABENE. SPECIFIC GOALS 02 •To participate in raising the incomes of the peasants. •To create permanent employment and development in the village. Description of project 1.A) Bakery materials 01 Double-door rotary oven for baking 01 Water cooler for flushing water 01 Flour mixing-kneading trough 01 Turntable for sectioning the dough 01 Scales for weighing the flour 12 Baking carts 01 Dough shaper 01 Dough divider 01 Delivery van All this material and equipment constitute the technical basis for a location with electrical installations and water supply with the appropriate plumbing. PERSONNEL AND JOBS 01 manager 01 foreman 02 kneaders 02 baking-oven chargers 01 delivery van driver 02 local salesgirls 01 bookkeeper 02 workmen Altogether: 12 staff ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL STUDIES ECONOMIC ANALYSIS THE MARKET • THE DEMAND The ABENE rural area constitutes a site characterized by more or less permanent presence of tourists, by fishermen and by an array of villages – about 12 villages as enumerated above. It thereby constitutes an important market of bread consumers; as one sees, many outlets are open to the products of the foundation’s bakery at ABENE. Furthermore a selling strategy towards the Karone isles will open up another sizeable market for the bakeries. •THE SUPPLY The capacity of the bakery is 290 loaves per bag. In consequence it can provide 290 loaves per bag times 12 bags per day times 30 days per month = 104,400 loaves per month i.e. 104,400 loaves times 12 months = 1,252,800 loaves annually. Thus one notes that the supply of bread in this rural area covers entirely the demand. •THE COMPETITION The alternative products are food items such as porridge of cereals, in particular millet, and maize, which are consumed by a part of the population. The other form of competition is the production of traditional bread, which is negligible. FINANCIAL ANALYSIS Profitability of the bakery General considerations The bakery project answers the expectations of the population both from the financial and from the social viewpoint. In fact in its social dimension it has a humanitarian character in that it participates in the upgrading of the village and surroundings. From the financial point of view the bakery yields a net benefit (after write-off and taxes) varying between 37 and 48 millions of CFA Francs per year. Profit and Cash Flow Profit is from 39 millions of CFA Francs (USD 66.924.835,92) to 40 millions (USD 68.640.873,36) of CFA Francs, and the cash flow from 45 millions of CFA Francs ( USD 77.220.964,45) to 47 millions of CFA Francs (USD 80.653.007,40) per year. This situation signals a sufficiently good constancy inspiring great confidence in this bakery project. CONCLUSION The bakery project reveals positive indicators of viability of the bakery, offering very encouraging financial results. Furthermore it creates jobs at village level and income, and raises the nutritional level of the population.
