High demand for Construction and Farming Equipments
Good climate for cashew production Availability of land, market, labour. 
High international demand. 
Low cost of production 
Security and Sustainability by purchase of freehold farmland with Certificate of Occupancy 
Comprehensive farm insurance 
Fencing with live fencing tree species (acacia) achieving barricade for animals, thieves, wind and fire
Value addition cashew bye products; 
The cashew apple - has multiple income generating potential, pressed for its juice, some of the juice will be fermented and processed into wine, others further distilled into liquor.
The apple pulp will be used to make candies, cakes, jellies and jams.
Some pulp can be dried and pounded into a couscous.
Excess pulp will be dried and used for animal feed As we go further, we will develop pulp conversion into energy as biofuel. Each unique product has good monetary value.

More sources of Income;
Apiculture - as bees can help cashew trees sustain a uniform nut and apple size, develop large nuts, adds more value to our cashew orchard, this we achieve by engaging a local bee keeping specialist. When we have many bees in the orchard during flowering time, more flowers will be pollinated and the resulting harvest will be better as bees travel up to 600 meters in search of flowers. The presence of bees also scares of likely intruders.

Cashew Value Chain Enhancement.

Secondary level roasted/salted.
Specialty kernels spicy/chocolate. 
Cashew nut butter.

Nutritional Value of Cashew
The vitamin C (ascorbic acid) content in a cashew apple is approximately 10 times more than pineapple and 4 times more than oranges 
(Journal of Tropical Agriculture, 2004)
It has medicinal properties used to treat scurvy, diarrhea,neurological pain, rheumatism and preventing cholera. 
The nuts consumption reduces tendency of heart diseases, stroke, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, muscle degeneration and dementia.
Cashew nut is a complete protein source. 
A 2009 study published in the American journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests cashew can help with weight loss.

Our planned location, at the centre of the eastern and southern States, operating on both (physical and online outlets), varieties of payment options, wide range of products and our excellent customer service culture to do more than expected, will count as more strength for us. Our team of highly motivated staff is a plus for us.

Current absence of complete processing line
Losses due to animal foraging/ theft

Most likely threat is global economic downturn which affects purchasing /spending power. Price fluctuations.
Uncontrolled bush fire
