The African-American Plan For Africans In America And In The African Diaspora

The Bread Plan

The Bread Plan and all Subsequent Plans

Requires  

 Commitment and Allegiance to the African-American Community.

loan_applicationIn understanding the first principle, of the Economic Reality of the US and European market place, we must first come to the realization that the playing field is not level.

Second, that we come to the market place with a different set of baggage, baggage that is unlike any that is being carried by our competitors.

credit_reportIf you understand these two aspects, of the Economic Reality, you are ready to look at and take part in the ABAFA/AAPAD Plan, to address these two impediments

First, is the market place it self: ABAFA/AAPAD must create a market for the African-American Entrepreneur. We do this by enlisting a pledge of 10% of our own people to partner with and support the entrepreneur, who in actually, is their own business partner. The member will then in essence, be buying from and supporting themselves.

Second, in exchange for this support, the entrepreneur will commit to providing the highest level of product and service to the community

 

40 million + African Americans in the Continental United States.   If 10% joined us at ABAFA/AAPAD it would create a 4 million.consumer market, with a vested interest in supporting a plan where they are co-owners with the entrepreneur.

You Are Now Ready To Look At The Enormous Strength, Of Ten Percent of The African-American Community, Working Together.

We will start with the 1 loaf of bread mentioned earlier.

Various_grains1 loaf of fresh bread cost $2.70 on average, purchased at the bakery or supermarket. (any computation of the numbers, not done here , are found on the first page “The Plan”)

If we only bought 1 loaf of bread a week per household it would translate into the following; $2.70 x 16,287,000 = 43 million 974 thousand dollars a week leaving our community via 1 loaf of bread per household. Multiply that by 52 weeks it equals [$43,975,000 x 52] = $2,287,000,000.00 or 2 billion 287 million. dollars;  leaving our community every year, via 1 loaf of bread per week per household.

How can we capture that kind of business activity and  hold it in our community? 

To do that would require the perfect scenario, but who are we fooling? We already know that African -American people are full of self hate and self doubt. We are steeped in the status-qua mentality, complacent, apathetic and fearful. They suspect  that anyone preaching a stand-up philosophy, is trying to create a schism, between them and their master. So! until we open the eyes of the present day adult African-American, and educate the children ourselves, the best we can hope for is a 10% participation rate.

ABAFA/AAPAD knows this and therefore projects the success of the plan on 10% participation rate.

A baker several years ago posted a marketing plan on the internet, seeking investors, or a loan,to start his bakery shop, baking 4 + types of bread.

The baker was requesting $71,000.00 to acquire a building, machinery, supplies and ingredients.

If a number of  members in ABAFA/AAPAD decided that they were interested in opening bakeries,

ABAFA/AAPAD, could select 10 (ten) states with the largest population of African- Americans and open or fund 3 bakeries in 4 cities in 10 states it would equal 120 bakeries at a cost of; $71,000.00 x 120 = $8,520,000.00. We could make this happen with 10% of our people participating.

Instead of 16,287,000 households involved, it would be 1,628,700 x 1 loaf a week 

The 120 Bakeries baking at 1200 loaves a day = 144,000 loaves per day x 7 days = 1,008,000 per week. That’s short of the membership demand by 36,000. What industry would not love to be in this situation. This short-fall can easily be corrected by a few hours of overtime or bringing another bakery on-line.

bills_wrapped_BWGross proceeds would amount to $2,721,600.00 per week. 

According to the finance plan submitted by the baker seeking capital. His lowest loaf was $2.50 his highest was $5.95, However his total unit cost for his $2.50 including bagging and out the door was .30 which is 12% of his selling price. $2,721,600.00 – less 12% =$2,395,008 / 120 bakeries =

$19,958.00 gross profits per outlet per week

UntitledAt a reasonable pay back rate, all funds advanced by the ABAFA/AAPAD membership, would find their way back to the treasury in less than 1 year.

Employing young black men and women, this scenario could be duplicated across the food, beverage, clothing and manufacturing industry

The latest figures from the US Dept of Commerce states that Black America has a One Trillion Dollar spending capacity. An ABAFA/AAPAD plan would wipe out poverty in the Black Community in six years. Think about it; if only 10% of our community pledged to help fund and support our own Black Enterprises by buying the products of our own businesses, it could end joblessness and poverty in our community. The potential is enormous.
