Knowing fully well that with a proper SWOT analysis we will be able to position our business to maximize our strengths, leverage on the opportunities that will be available to us, mitigate our weaknesses, and be well equipped to confront our threats. We conducted research and came up with the following results
- Our location,
- Our business structure and distribution network.
- Availability of the right equipment to meet the massive demand for chalk in Nigeria
- The fact that we produce both white and colored chalk which most of our major competitors don’t
- Our excellent customer service culture will definitely count as a strong strength

- The fact that we are going to be operating our chalk production company in one of the largest commercial areas in Kaduna provides us with unlimited opportunities to sell to a large number of people.
- Loads of people make use of chalk on a daily basis and as such, there is a demand-supply gap. All that is needed of us is to position our chalk as the preferred
- One of the major threats that we are likely going to face is the economic downturn which has affected the purchasing/spending power.
