If you want to get funding from banks or other financial institutions, preparing a project report will help a lot. Such a project report should include technical analysis and financial aspects. Create a technical section that considers the plant capacity, manufacturing technology and raw materials you will use, as well as the entire organization of the production process. Clearly demonstrate your business objectives. Address the financial aspects, including fixed costs, working capital, expected sales revenue and return on investment.
