At the beginning of this year, we set out to expand to more states and impact positively in the lives of thousands of farmers in Nigeria. In line with this goal is our mission, which is to use technology to provide a trustworthy platform that gives Nigerians the opportunity to sponsor farmers and end poverty in Africa one farmer at a time.
We are committed to this goal and it’s the reason why we have worked hard and dedicated our resources to closing the first quarter of the year by empowering over 800 rice farmers in Kwara State.
Kwara state, otherwise known as The State of Harmony is nested in the North Central geopolitical zone in Nigeria and is home to over one million farmers according to the Farmer’s census that was conducted by the Kwara State government in 2009.
The 800 farmers in Kwara state will be farming on 2000 acres of rice farm and will be provided with adequate funding and training to get the highest yield by harvest period.
We are determined to increase food production and food security in Nigeria and each time we expand to a new state and empower farmers in those states, we are a step closer to our goals.
We have also opened more farm units at lower prices so more people can get an opportunity to sponsor farms.
When you sponsor a farm, you will be receiving returns after harvest on your sponsorship, but beyond this, you will also be empowering rural farmers to receive the adequate input, support and education they need to cultivate more crops, make more money to feed their families and more importantly, you will be growing the agricultural landscape in Nigeria.
