About the farm

This camel farm will provide fresh camel milk to the city of Galkacyo where camel milk is very popular. Camels are very important in Somalia both for milk and meat. Somalia is the world's #1 camel milk producer. At this farm camels will be given utmost care by former nomads who have been camel herders for many generations. The animals have access to quality food, medicine and water.

Investing in camels

For this farm we will only buy camels that are lactating or pregnant camels that are close to give birth. As an investor you can make money by getting a share of the revenues that are generated from the milk that we sell from the farm. Every quarter we will share 8% of the camel's purchase value from the milk revenues for 12 months. After 12 months the revenues from the milk will stop as this is the average months that a camel can produce milk. It is possible to buy a whole camel or shares of a camel. To be eligible for revenues from the milk, the investor must own at least 30% of camel shares. You can always sell your camel before or after 18 months by following the local market price which you can see in the app.

Example investment in camels

If you buy a camel for $ 1500, you will be eligible for 8% of the camel's purchase price for every quarter from milk revenues. Therefore, you will get $ 120 per quarter for 4 quarters or $ 480 in total, which is 32% return on your investment. After 12 months you can sell your camel based on the local market price. If you make a profit from the sale we will take 10% commission. If you don't make a profit, we don't take a commission.

Local impact

This farm will create jobs for former nomads who will be responsible for taking care of the animals and selling milk. We expect up to 5 people to work at this farm. The farm also creates another impact by providing fresh camel milk to the residents of the city . In addition, we also make an impact by providing a market for people who want to sell camels to us.
