The Missing Middle
While micro finance has succeeded in providing access to capital for people at the base of the pyramid, most micro finance lenders are capitalized to take an entrepreneur only so far.
The vast majority of entrepreneurs served by micro finance loans still lack the ability to scale their business, add real value in the supply chain, and steadily increase their profitability.
The Living Water Investment Plan is the second phase, which will be introduced after the installation of our Living Water MicroFinance Inc.
Our Living Water Investment Plan is where entrepreneurs can organize, analyze, optimize, and share a customized business plan with investors and business mentors.
The business mentors from Next6 helps guide an assessment of the business’s strengths and weaknesses, a comparison of business to industry peers and an estimate of the business valuation.
Living Water Is Corporation will guarantee a 10% return on investments in the first year. Our Opportunity Snapshot develops a fund raising campaign to tell a story and get the word out.
The entrepreneur may be asked to invest as little as 5% to10% of the investment required. The entrepreneur’s business information is confidential and secure. The only parties which will see your business information are the parties with which he or she choose to share, i.e. investors.
The Big Question is how much of an investment are we talking about? The answer is related to the selling of a profitable reasonable concise business plan on our Opportunity Snapshot. As to the amount, you can only go so many times to the well, so we are forced to limit ourselves to unique business ideas, which are scalable and difficult to copy. If it doesn’t fill and need, it won’t go anywhere.
A very common way to pitch an idea on line is to make a video. Videos make it easy, on a human level, to get familiar with the people behind the idea or cause, and they are far easier to digest than reading through a Power Point presentation.
