We are structured as a Non Profit Company.

  • – Through the church we IDENTIFY unskilled and unemployed people to develop local businesses that have impact with a quadruple bottom line – spiritual, financial, environmental and social areas.   We source matching investors who have the option to participate either on an outright loan or on a profit sharing basis.
  • – The spiritual bottom line means that we intentionally disciple the candidates and empower them to access and release the principles of the Kingdom of God into their businesses and spreading the gospel.
  • – The financial bottom line is where mentors get involved to coach the candidates to ensure that the business is a profitable enterprise.
  • – The environmental bottom line must be adhered to for example the candidates are expected to steward natural resources in an honouring way.
  • – The social bottom line is the expectation that the candidate would be conscious of having a greater impact in their local community.
  • – We take great care to ensure success by assisting with business plans, and training and mentoring successful candidates.

  • FARMING GOD’S WAY

The Farming God’s Way methodology is well proven in both commercial and small scale settings. It teaches order and discipline in growing while using currently available resources to farmers. It advocates organic inputs while restoring soil health and protecting it. A key foundation is that God through His Word has revealed how mankind can be successful in farming (or any business for that matter), these truths are taught in the Farming God’s Way course. The result is higher yields, using organic inputs with better drought and pest resistance as multi-cropping practices are applied. For example on 1 ha of land a farmer can grow 44 444 maize plants and yield between 3 to 8 tpa depending how well they apply the training, trust God and climatic conditions. Since a family of 4 requires about 1,25 tpa a farmer can rejoice in living off the ground with God his Provider.

  • EGG PRODUCTION / LAYERS

15 month cycle
Cost of layers @ 19 week point of lay @ R120 each = R12000
Cull after 15 month – sell for R50 each – R1200 less R50 each  – cost of birds = R7000

Feed 115 g per bird per day = 11.5 kg per day / 345 kg per month x 15 = R5175 kg per 15 month cycle

Cost @ R5 per kg
Total cost = R25875

Packaging – R1200 trays @ R150per try = R1860
Total costs = R34,735

Income: 100 birds @ 80 eggs per day R2400 per month x 15 months = 36000 per cycle @ R2 each = R72000

Profit R37265 per cycle / 15 months = R2484
Figures exclude housing electricity and labour

  • BLACK SOLDIER FLY

The larvae of the Black Solder Fly is a valuable source of protein that can be used to feed chickens and fish. The BSF larvae consume organic waste and thus avoids food waste creating disease as it rots unattended. BAMSA is currently developing small scale BSF larvae production facilities which can either be used by chicken farmers themselves or could be set up as a standalone business which collects household waste (either free or for a fee) and sells larvae to chicken and fish farmers.

  • BROILERS

Key numbers per 100 birds cycle
Day old to 6 weeks

Costs
Feeders drinkers infrared lights  (once off cost) R500
100 x Day old chicks @ R7 each = R700
Feed costs average (starter grower finisher)
110g per bird per day (11 kg of feed per day) @ R8 per kg  =  R88 per day x 45 days = R3690
Total costs R700 + R3690 = R3760

Income: 95 birds @ R70 = R6650
Profit: R2890
Figures exclude housing electricity and labour
