Based on my personal experience, I will share some insight and the rest of steps can be discuss it you are ready for it.
There are several ways to make money on this business sector of Agro-Industry, here are 3 ways:
1) If you have time, experience, knowledge on farming growing any kind of crop. I’m sure you will enjoy the opportunity of doing it here in Ecuador since you can harvest all year long.
2) Building up an industry that will take care of production or manufacturing processes for the national market or to export.
3) Investing money with an existing Agro-Industry that is already exporting the crop with a value-added it brings better revenue than having it in a CD.
This 3rd way has work great for me until this present time. The Ago-Industry located in the city port of Guayaquil with a good portfolio of clients in USA and the Caribbean Island has given me the trust during all this years of business with them. They process the green and ripe plantains giving a value-added. One of their many products is the Tostones made with carefully selected high quality plantains, cultivated in the Ecuadorian tropic, carefully harvest by hand. This is very nutritious product with many health benefits. It is low in cholesterol and has no preservatives, artificial coloring or flavoring. If you decide to invest we will have a personal tour and meeting with the owner of the Agro- Industry and work out your investment with a much better revenue that a CD can offer.
