Our revenue model:
We have positioned ourselves for long-term sustainability, profitability and expansion because first of all our company is at-profit and then our company has a 99-year lifespan from which it would be perfectly normal for we advocate the.
My revenue model is as follows:
The merchant site with online payment system
The subscription which corresponds to the payment of a subscription to our website.
The financial marketplace: the system of setting up a crowdfunding platform where a multitude of financing offers and a request for financing in the agricultural field will meet. In exchange for this service, the platform is remunerated by a commission.
Advertising: This is the source of funding that comes first. It consists of selling advertising space on its site.
Lead: This is a system that consists of selling a customer database to a business partner. To create this database, sites have forms filled in when creating an account or subscribing to a newsletter. Many of these users agree to be contacted for promotional offers. It is this database that can be minted because it represents potential customers easy to contact for companies.
Why we are applying to Solve:
I applyied to solve because I need to get the funds which are promise.By bringing GOHA's success in adapting the financing of agriculture to a wider audience, we hope to help it scale - either through increased financing or by inspiring others to replicate or model.
The key barriers for our solution:
Self Help Africa, a US and European registered non-profit, is our majority shareholder;
A number of other African and European-based individuals who work in agricultural development are minority shareholders.
TruTrade receives some grant assistance from Mercy Corps and Trocaire (both non-profits) and is soliciting funding/investment from a variety of actors.
