Investment Opportunity

Investment opportunity in a Kenian company manufacturing colours, decoration paints and adhesives, intending to capture the untapped regional market.

Our intention is to capture the untapped East and Central African, as well as the Indian Ocean market.
We are going to reach this market through authorised distributors, agents or dealers.

I have been studying the industry for some time and I am confident in the benefits this opportunity will bring.
The expansion project will be performed under my full time supervision, so that we will be addressing the arising shortcomings right away with speed to avoid a repeat of the same.
Within at least the first twelve months in existence the project should be in public domain, so that customers start identifying our products and liking them.
We are looking for working capital finances for machinery and general infrastructure
Reasonable returns will be experienced within the first twelve months.

Competitive Advantage

The just few manufactures in the region have a monopoly of controlling the regional market due to the advantage of being first-comers.
I have done my own research and developed a strategy on how to be different and better than the competition to enable a successful market entry and sustainable competitiveness. Only if we kick start this one would see that I walk the talk, and not to talk the walk.
This is a really sustainable business because even if competitors think of repeating our success, it would take them long time to understand the specificities while we are on move.

Rationale for the deal

Current and future market gaps are already there because the industry is not exhausted and it is not an obvious business one or anybody can just think of and enter the market.
There are existing market players making money from different opportunities with a lot of problems but my strategies are different, and we would therefore make more money.
Target market is my own country urban market and other markets in the region. We plan to address the export market Kenya being the regional business hub.

Use of financing

Funding is needed for initial working capital, machinery and general infrastructure.

Opportunity for the investor

I would get a loan of about USD 300,000 payable in three years.
There are plenty of aspects that need a lot of discusion but they would be addressed at the given time, in a private conversation.
We'd like to receive at least half of the amount within the first six months.
We are offering a secure and profitable investment opportunity in Kenya.
