Sources of Fund:

Incidentally, generating Fund/Start-up Capital for Cashew Nuts Factory Ltd is going to come majorly from the proprietors. In fact, Cashew Nuts Factory Ltd is a business owned and run by Dean Daniel and his immediate family members. This is a family business that Daniel family took over from their grandfather. Therefore, they have no intention whatsoever of inviting any external partners to own a share of their business. This has led to restriction of capital sourcing to only three major sources.

On this ground, the areas where we intend generating our start-up capital from include;

  • Personal Savings: Getting part capital from personal savings
  • Soft Loan from Related Parties: That is sourcing for soft loans from family members
  • Bank Loan: Applying for loan from the bank

In actual fact, we have been able to generate the sum of N20,000,000 from personal savings. We also got the sum of N18,000,000 as soft loan from our family members. In addition we have recently got the sum of N35,000,000 approved for us by the bank after all documents were signed and conditions met. The loan is a long term one to be repaid in 10 years at an interest rate of 3%.
