WHY I FEEL THE NEED.........
For quite some time now. I have raised Catfish for myself, my family, and our financial support as well. I was blessed with the land and the knowledge of how to raise Catfish and use the knowledge to make a living. I come from (5) generations of Catfish Farmers, and the knowledge as I have noted. Allows me to support my family. This knowledge has also allowed me to supply fish for Church and Community fundraisers to raise money for such worthy causes as school supplies, and dinners for the homeless. My need is for equipment that I will need to assist in raising Catfish in a year round environment using a process that I have divised from years of painstaking work! If I have this equipment. I will double, and even triple the amount of fish that I can supply in a year's time. There are few Hatcheries in this area, and there is a great demand for Catfish and I use the Bi-products to creat fertilizers and other uses that I can not mention at this time. But the uses are of healthy means and no harmful effects have ever been experienced from any of my methods.
I will be able to feed the needy and supply the Church and the Community at no cost to them. So that there is a clear profit for when there are fundraisers using the catfish that I provide. At the same time. I will be able to continue to support my family, and financially have what we need as a result of the help that this fundraiser will supply to me and the help that I will need to purchase the necessary equipment that I will need to purchase.
I will need $15,500.00's for materials that I use to secure my methods and the environmental tanks and so on that I will need to make this dream a reality. The people of this community love catfish, and there is a demand for the fish in this area, and the neighboring counties even. I have done my homework, and I know that using my method which will encourage an even more healthier amount of catfish with every spawn. I will be able to quadruple the amounts of each spawn. I will also be able to produce jobs within this community as well. I will need a minimum of 35 to 100 personnel once I am able to see the first year through clearly. And I will be able to grow the farm from just this fundraiser.
Please assist in this dream of mine and my family. You will be helping us. Help others with this endeavor that has fed many families from the time of my ancestors five generations before me. Thank you and God Bless those who give! You will be helping me, to pay it forward! Thank You
