INTRODUCTION

Agriculture was the boom of the Nigerian economy in the past and it still has all it takes to be the economic boom of today’s present and tomorrows future because everything is centred on Agriculture, manufacturing, fashion/lifestyle, food and beverage and many more.

The fact remains that the importance of Agriculture cannot be over emphasized as it is the source of major commodities we use every day. But the neglect/abandonment of the Agricultural sector can be visible from the less atten  ntion paid to it due to the below identified problems.

 

 

PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION

Lack of interest in Agriculture

•This is due to the mind-set we all grew up with, that farming is a transaction done in the village alone


•Whereas everyone is aiming at getting white collar jobs hence the migration to the city for greener pasture at the expense of Agriculture


•Crude equipment which is energy exhausting and time consuming with little income


Lack of training and know how

•No training and no skill


•Limited training and limited skill


Lack of technology driven platform

•The cost of available technology in terms of soft solutions for Agriculture to boost sales is expensive


•No online community to engage youths and other interested indigenes in a network for easier information dissemination, organization and management.


Market

Many people don’t know certain markets exist for certain Agri produce. They don’t know;

 

•Where to sell
•What to sell
•How to sell


Lack of innovative program

•Creative schemes/programs to make indigenes have interest and actively participate in Agriculture

 

We are sensitizing the Nigerian people on the NEED TO START agriculture as a BUSINESS not just for food but for other products that we use everyday.

Look at the leather seats in your cars, offices, homes, etc

look at the shoes on your feet, the hand bag you are carrying, your wallet, belt, etc

 

Think of the doors, wardrobes, cabinets, shelves, the wooden designs in your cars, table, etc in your home, office, hotel, restaurants, lounges, schools, etc

Think about the dress you are wearing, I am sure you like 100%✓ and it looks good on you, fits good on you and people admire you...

Think about the paper you use, magazines, newspapers, wallpapers, catalogues, A4 sized sheets, cartons, your tv manuals, phone manuals, etc

I can go on and on and the list of agricultural produce beyond food will keep flowing.

We have designed more than 3000 agriculture value chains which you can make money from conveniently from your smart phone beyond food.

You don't need to go to farm
You don't need to own a farm
You don't need to know a farmer

All you need is select a value chain from our list of multiple value chains and we will set it up for you to start making money, it is that simple;

Fashion 
Furniture
