The key is develop a business proposal that is ambitious, researched and demonstrates a path to create value. Its also important to have differentiation points e.g focus on environmental friendly projects, housing projects for the low-income earners in a region. It becomes easier to find funders when you have started even though at small scale.
From here, its about pitching the plan to potential funders: - Commercial Banks - Micro-lending organisations - Green Belt Movement organisations
Some might just offer capital in exchange for shares in your company (Equity) while some might offer loads (Debt).
