Mr. Ali - a poor young man has grown up in the vicious state of poverty. Being an uneducated man, he has no respectable livelihood for himself and his poor family. Recently, he has come to know that the local government has announced to provide small interest-free loans to the people for starting small scale businesses.
He planned to start a photocopy center in a rented shop located near a large college. He applied for a loan with the local government and to his luck; he has been provided a loan worth Rs. 90,000 for a period of two years payable in equal monthly installments.
Using this borrowed money, he chalked out a business plan with following features:
Estimated purchase price of a photocopy machine along with a Generator having a combined useful life of 5 years.
Other than purchase of photocopy material, monthly expenses are:
Rent of the shop
Monthly electricity bill
Ali acquired a used photocopy machine along with generator (with the similar expected useful life) for a total of Rs. 90,000 payable in two equal installments; each to be paid by the end of third month. He can easily get paper from a local whole seller at Rs. 350 per ream for a foreseeable period. Each ream consists of 500 papers. Cost of toner refilling is Rs.500 which will last 5,000 pages. Misc. variable costs including the cost of staple pins are estimated at 10% of the unit sale price which is Rs. 2 per page.
