Pakistan today produces over 50,000 Tons of garbage every day from households alone. Only 60% of this garbage is being collected which means over 20,000 Tons of garbage is left on the streets and open areas, clogging our drains, sewerage systems causing severe environmental and health hazards.
Waste Busters has taken the lead in combating this alarming situation by coming up with a concept which would not only take care of the pollution being created but also generate over 15,000 jobs and an entire new industry of waste management and recycling in Pakistan.
The “Clean Pakistan” Program has been launched by the Waste Busters with support from the Prime Minister’s Youth Program (PMYP) through financing made available for eligible and qualified “Ecopreneurs” who would apply for and get a Franchise of Waste Busters for implementing this program in their local Union Council.
The project has been envisaged to spread all over Pakistan using the methodology and training provided by the Waste Busters for garbage collection and recycling of waste to generate revenue for the “Ecopreneur” who would be the local franchisee of Waste Busters.
The Ecopreneurs who would be selected through a qualification process would become eligible for financial assistance in terms of a soft loan made available to them through the National Bank of Pakistan for up to Rs. 20 lacs.
This Loan would be repayable at a special 6% interest rate and payable in 8 years as per the terms of the Prime Minister’s Youth Loan Program. The repayment schedule for the Loan would commence after the first year.
Repayment of the Loan and income generation from this franchise model is estimated to be Rs. 100,000 per month as profit after payment of all expenses. The Financial model and details of the project cash flows are given to the applicants who have registered with the program.
This project has been designed specially for the Youth of Pakistan whom we call “Ecopreneurs”.
An “Ecopreneur” is the young person who shares our vision of a Clean Pakistan. A person who wants to do something for his country and a person who has the passion to become self made and have his/her own business.
Waste Busters is offering its Franchise to operate its waste management model at the grass root level that is the Union Council. Any person with the requisite qualifications can apply to get a Franchise from Waste Busters.
The selected franchisee is called the “Ecopreneur”. The Ecopreneur would be given a proper training along with the guidance to implement the program in his/her Union Council once he has been selected.
The Ecopreneur would also qualifiy to apply for the Loan of Rs. 20 Lacs made available from the National Bank of Pakistan through the Prime Minister’s Youth Loan Program at specially discounted interest rate of 6% and is payable in 8 years.
The Loan would be applied towards the initial Capital Cost and operating expenses of the Franchise in any given area. This would include hiring of manpower, purchasing of pick up vehicles, hand carts, tools, protective gear and training of the personnel.
The Clean Pakistan Program has been designed specially to attract the unemployed youth in the Country. The person who complies with the following criteria may apply for a Franchise of Waste Busters and can become an “Ecopreneur”.
