Jatropha Farming in the Philippines

  • Where can I find more info on this BioEnergy investment?


    HI richpulubi!

    I dont know much about investing, its terminologies and the likes but I understand that your primary concern is that you are looking for a diversified investment plan with a low investment capital and a high growth potential yield spread in long term time frame.

    In that case, I think you should try to check out our BioEnergy investment plan because i believe its a better alternative as compared to sunlife or may serve as an additional investment mix for you. As you have listed, here are the reasons why i think we are better fit for you.

    1. Low investment capital
    • 1 farm share is worth P30,000 (and you can buy as many farm shares as you can and want!)
    • 10% discount if paid spot cash upon registration
    • Can be paid on an installment plan with P4,800 downpayment and P700 monthly spread in 3 years.

    2. Diversified Investment Plan
    • Invested in farming of jatropha trees for biodiesel production which have a high market demand
    • Invested in farming of mango and moringa trees for food export production
    • Invested in real estate (purchase of idle land to be cultivated and converted to farm land)
    • Invested in micro-lending cooperative institution

    3. Long term investment
    • Life time rights to income (income generated as long as the cooperative exists)
    • Transferrable to heirs (the best investment for you and your family's future)
    • Profit yield increases with time (trees yield more fruit and land value appreciates)

    While Profit may be realized after 3 years of farm cultivation, its a secure investment because your investment is solid (trees and processing plant) and real (land/real estate). Buying stocks is also a good investment, but its still riskier because our economic condition is very volatile and only a select few can get a hand on insider stock trading or tips.

    There are still other investment benefits under BioEnergy but i'll reserve that for now, I hope we could discuss them all in another day. Your investment choice is yours to own and make... and this is just a great investment opportunity which you might want to consider. Thanks!

    Invest in to something tangible. Something that your future would thank you and the generation after you, for being wise in grabbing your life's opportunity.

  • it's just for a fact that when you invest in BioEnergy, you're like investing in ortigas land, when its price was still at P10 per sq. meter. Today, alam naman nating lahat na umaabot sa 50-100,000 ang per sq. meter ng lupa dun ngayon. guys, be a very wise investor/man/woman, and invest for your future..

    I'd say yes, since the oil prices now is reaching up to $100/ barrel , different companies right now is shifting to a renewable source of energy and that includes jatropha. I'm from Bioenergy Farms MPC and we aim to develop a total of at least 380,000 hectares nationwide by the year 2018 consisting of Jatropha intercroped with mango and moringa ( malunggay )
    and im pretty confident that this project will lessen our dependence on importing a dirty fossil fuel that will mitigate global warming plus giving additional revenues on rural areas by giving them jobs.

    where do you intend to invest r00tcipher?
    would you like to know more about our project? so that you'll have an idea on the potential of jatropha farming. and plus this will give you options.

    btw, one of our incorporators, Rudy Q. Corro Jr. Apart from his consultancies with multinational agri-genetic companies, he's also currently our Chief Operating Officer and fortunately he also graduated with honors at UP Los-Banos!

  • i doubt that the deal between the PNOC-AFC and their farm project will continue very effectively since they're more of a industrial model, naghihintay lagi sila ng funding coming from external source and one of them is China.. since the ZTE-deal issue brought up just recently it resulted into a negative impact on them they are now hesistant to have a deal with gov't owned corporation..

    it is true that the price of the fuel may go as high as what is stated in the article but that's exactly one of the indication na maganda and there's really a hype on jatropha farming, dun palang sa bentahan ng seeds on the black market could even reach as high as Php 150/kilo..
    but we do have plans and strategy about on how to deal with that once we could establish our own stations, we could sell 100% biofuel on a much cheaper price than on gas stations.

    We are a national Multi-Purpose Cooperative (authorized by the CDA/DOF, initially at an authorized capitalization of P50 Million on Sept. 12, 2007) that will go into multiple, synergistic lines of business/service to its members which can create earlier revenues even while the trees are growing. such as:
     
    - BioEnergy Consumer Coop operations -
    once the membership base has reached a substantial size, we will use the collective buying power of our members so that they can buy together at wholesale even with small retail budgets. The coop will earn a bit from this also.
     
    - BioEnergy Service Coop operations -
    Just as with consumer services, members will be able to avail of services at wholesale discounts even though they are purchasing at retail. One exmaple:
    eLoading services -- an eProject is now in motion that may allow our members to purchase cellphone eLoad straight from their BioEnergy eWallets (to which their weekly income will be directed, phasing out old-fashioned checks) saving around 10% rather than if they buy retail OTC (Over the Counter, in mall shops). As you know, Filipinos spend nearly P300 Billion per year just on prepaid telecom eLoad (amazing!). Helping our members to get the wholesale margin of 10% off eLoad can be substantial when you take into account that the ave Filipino family of 5 people consumed more than P30,000 per annum in eLoad alone. That's P3,000 saved by the member and his family, with about 1% earned by the Coop per transaction (not bad if we do
     
    - BioEnergy Credit Coop operations
    Apart from savings mobilization, MicroEnterprise development loans may be extended to deserving member-owned businesses (subject to feasibility review by our Enterprise Credit Committees). There will also be a % spread wherein the Coop will also earn here.
     
    So as you can see, we are not confined only to being an Energy Farming/Processing coop (which is strategic).
     
    As we build our National Network of Cooperatives, we envision the probability that these coops may even sell its own BioFuel output straight to consumers in the community (i.e. we may have our own BioEnergy Gas/Service Stations!). This is in line with out Farm-to-Tank end-to-end business intention. So we will also be a Marketing Coop in addition to being a Producers Coop ;)
     
    So our Members may earn a share of the profits from multiple revenue streams -- it will only get better as time goes by, slowly but surely.

    but i was introduced to the phil. coconut assoc. and their plans last october when i visited bohol.

    this seems to be a good plan... how much is the minimum investment?
    pasensya na sir, hindi ako makakaattend sa seminars nyo at this time e.

  • capital investment is P4,800 down payment, then 700 x 36 mos po ma'am. for an investment like this, people consider this cheap.

    Ah yes, phil. coconut association, i've heard of it po. Like I've said po, coconut is a very good source of oil.. However, meron ng mga 'peste' na sumisira sa mga ito, kaya naging high maintenance narin.

    If I'm not mistaken, may nilalagay na silang special foil then insecticide para mamatay ang mga ito.

    Ang Jatropha kasi mga ma'am at sir, kaya ito tinawag na "tubang bakod" dahil parang nagkakaroon ng shield ang lugar na pinagtatamnan ng mga ito laban sa mga ahas, insekto tulad ng lamok at peste.. minimal ang overhead expenses ng company dahil dito at talagang maximized ang profit.

    tomorrow po (saturday), meron ulit kaming seminar at around 7:00 PM, baka po pwede kayong maka attend. I'll accompny you personally. mas maganda kung group kayo so that you can consult with one another.

    Here's my number po. 0922-474-25-43

    GOD BLESS!

    kaya i was hoping i'd get feedback from richpulubi kung include nya yan sa kanyang portfolio.

    pero i'll take note of your number.
    hopefully, i'd have time to check out your farm once i get back there.  :D

    God bless you more!

  • i hope we don't have to import seeds... we have our own variety anyway, let's just develop a more efficient process of extracting the oil from the available species we have.
    it's ok to explore hybrids, but sana naman labscale muna at baka too late na pag large scale agad ang gagawing farming ng imported seeds tapos we find out na my adverse effect sa existing flora natin.

    pasensiya ka na, I'm still studying this investment. As the saying goes, it's better to have a grade b product with a grade a management, than a grade a product with a grade b management. I'll post my findings once I find out.
