MANAGEMENT CONSULTANCY, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT, FINANCE
At this moment we are partner in Lelembwe Dairy Farm. Together with Henry Chipwere we developed a sustainable case and we found the necesarry financial means to start-up this dairy farm in Thyolo. The animal house is build and the first cows are there, producing milk. Extra cows are bought, one cow gave birth and 2 cows are pregnant at the moment. New cows can be bought from revenues to grow the business steadily. First financial reports show a little disappointing revenues, due to unexpected low milk production of our cows. But with good care of the cows and the extra cows milk production is picking up. As partners we agreed to appoint a full time manager to the farm starting July 2018 to scale up care for the cows and milk production. At the end of 2018 production of milk still didn't pick up, dispite all measures taken. We are now discussing if we should continue the business.
