    • Feasibility Road Trip to Malaysia
    • Approving our plan
      • Found a Sweet Potato farmer to look at our plan
      • Concur that good soil is not needed
      • Concur with 100 days period
      • But… said that planting using tubers may not be most effective
    • Approving our plan
      • Suggested using Sweet Potato Vines will take lesser time to grow
      • Much, much lower attrition rate
      • Sweet potatoes are easy to grow in tropical climates like Malaysia, Singapore or Batam
      • Gave us healthy, live samples
    • Growing process
      After 1 month
      After 100 days
    • Prototype building process
    • Prototype building process
    • Prototype building process
    • Prototype building process
    • What we learnt
      There’s no shortage of land space
      Hence, no need to plant between trees
      Farmers become unwilling when they have to pay
      Farmers will try out a batch, if we help them start up for free
      Potato vines grow extremely easily
    • Advantage and disadvantage
      Easy to grow
      Easy to mass produce
      Short harvest time
      Low start-up Capital
      • Low ROI
    • Our long-term plans
      Give them the first batch of sweet potatoes vines.
      And a new source of income, stable cash flow
      Help them “upgrade” to higher value crops
      Like mangoes, pineapples or durian
      Money from sale of sweet potatoes as a sustainable income
      Until the mango, durian or other fruit trees mature
    • Best proof that it works?
      Just 2 days after planting the vine!
      New roots!
