Feasibility Study for Buyer/Importer for Risk Management

I am into commodity trade and export since 2006, primarily offers Cavendish Banana from Philippines, Rice from Thailand/Vietnam and Moringa Propagation.

Trading and Import-Export is a money making machine but I am saddened how many importers fall into waste of time and losses of lots of money.    Many are earning but a lot are being cheated as there are so many scammers in the internet. Per my own experience, the bait always entraps those who are greed and the ones who only think of  profit yet do not invest on feasibility study and planning.   In the contrary, those who knew the importance of research are the ones who earn more revenue in the long run as it is necessary to manage the business right and its risks involve.

With this realities in the trade and import-export business, I offered an extra mile services of doing their feasibility study and business plan and wants to ask of my services.  I am thankful because they turned-out satisfied.

I provide below studies if needed but I needed ample support as doing a research required at least a week or  two for a brief stay in the target location.  Such is not an easy task and somehow inconveniently risky.

– Feasibility Study

– Business Plan

– Marketing Plan

– Brand Equity

– Other research material for a credible business direction.

Some clients do not believe and prefer to find the supplier themselves.   Everyone is free to decide.  It’s just that buyers mostly fall to wrong person/company as end sellers and/or farm owner-grower are hard to find in the internet.   What mostly found in the net are the  Trading companies or agent/broker.    Worst, some buyers  fall to a pretender-scammers.  To avoid hassles and loss of money, I suggest to my client buyers/importers that I can lead them to right contacts by allowing me to first coordinate with farm owner/end seller and provide feasibility study based on rigid research and actual site visit.  Otherwise, the risk is to the buyer/importer if they go straight to the location.    The sample is available upon request via e-mail:  denissalvatierra@yahoo.com

  1. The Business

1.1. Business Model and Value Proposition

1.1.1. Definition

As such, BIGAS@N101 will serve as a Rice online wholesale arm of Sembawang Trading, and as the go-between for the manufacturers/producers and the wholesale buyer/importer to meet their needs in the market.

This business dream to expand in the near future in the areas of farming and support to farmers and new entrepreneurs.

1.1.2. Business Name

We are registered as…

The word “Sembawang” was derived from a residential place in Singapore called Sembawang Drive to where the proponent learned online commodity trading when he briefly stayed on 2005.  We facilitate various products for export.

But as to our local rice offer, we plan to use a different name, as per suggested Signage design below.  If not, we will have no choice but to register below logolized company name

Why?

“Bigas” means Rice and “Bigasan” means Rice Store. The “@” was inserted instead of plain “a” as it is a symbol of e-commerce and trading. This will communicate to consumers that we are more than an ordinary rice store, we also facilitate wholesale and be also found in the internet (on-line rice trading). Our store name is easy to understand.

At the same time, we aim to create  a balance-work atmosphere above and beyond personal gain.

  • …”whatever we do, we do it all  for the glory of God”

Quotation:

“People succeeded in their projects

not only because they know

how to grow their crops

or their farm animals.

They succeed because they know

how to market they produce.

They know how to time their production

so that they sell their harvests

at a high price.”
– Zac B. Sarian
