this is my first post, so please forgive any mistakes.
I’m posting because I’ve got a problem and I hope you can help me. But please let me introduce me and my intention first.
I am part of a two men engineering and consulting bureau located in Dresden Germany. My partner and me, we both studied Engineering management. Our activities are mainly in conception, finding cooperation partners, supervision and training of local partners for energy projects.
Last year I spend my holiday for a German NGO called “Grünhelme e.V. “ in South Kivu. The organization financed the construction of a school in Kibe (a village in the Mwenga district). The project was enabled by the vice-governor Mr. Kibala.
Our team helped the villagers to build up the school (training of bricklayers, carpenter and so on.)
I loved the time we lived there in the village. Unfortunately there was an attack of the FDLR and the villagers thought it was too unsafe for us, so we had to leave. Needless to say, that the workers finished the school on their own. ;-)
However I promised to give kivu another try and to come back with another project.
That’s where my problem is:
We plan to start a solar cooperative. Every member gets a solar-kiosk (its like a small petrol station but with electricity instead of petrol ;-). The member can now sell the electricity on his own. In return he pays a small fee to the cooperative. This fee enables the cooperative to buy new solar-kiosks and other tools or sales products.
So far so good, problem is already the foundation of the enterprise. ;-)
We need more information to the foundation process. It seems to be very bureaucratic and expensive. We need to hold the cost for the foundation in relation to the planned investment. It’s may not a big enterprise but we think it’s a first step.
Is there anyone in this forum who can help us?
Maybe we’re even able to write a manual of foundation in Congo together.
Thank you in advance.
