Co2ol Design SAS
Investment in a Cool Farm Trust in the Dominican Republic.
We practice restoration agriculture and carbon farming with activated biochar derived from local waste products. We increase food nutrient density, smallholder profits, and store carbon. In marginal areas, we can potentially duplicate available farmland. Combining mixed-use forest ecologies, natural plant breeding, and perennial superfoods, we provide nutrition, energy, profits and antifragile rural development. A successful test plantation was established in early 2017 and remarkably weathered two hurricanes. We wish to expand now to satisfy the client’s uncovered demand. Our client is Gildan Activewar, a multinational public company with revenues of US$5 Billion and more than 20,000 workers in the Caribbean. In our test plantation, the Client saved up to 50% against fuel oil power for industry. We propose a Cool Farm Round 2 in 2019 to supply biomass for fuel and ecological co-products. Investors are invited to a Cool Farm stake yielding a fixed 23% APR from a Capital Lease Trust registered in the Dominican Republic. Terms: Lessee: CO2OL DESIGN S.A.S. Total Lease Investment: $500,000 USD. Expected Return of Lease (Capital + interest): $1,000,000 USD. Net payment after local income taxes, transfer costs & Trustee/Banks Collateral: As provided by the Trust & Client agreement. This offers a return 4 times greater than the typical green bond. The project in the Dominican Republic will neutralize the annual carbon footprint of 4,000 persons and create 40 new jobs. It opens the door to new ideas for products and services that can build circular local economies and reverse rural outmigration. It creates opportunities for youth, bridges the gender gap, and ticks off the boxes of sustainable development. Contact: email@example.com +1 (809) 791 9557
