Visit to Poultry Farmers in Abuja

As part of our commitment to promote agribusinesses amongst youth and household, we visited some small scale poultry farmers in ABUJA today and had fruitful interactions with them on challenges faced in production. Their passion and enthusiasm is worth emulating despite high mortality and unfavorable conditions. Government must put in place policies and incentives to assist subsistence farming and boost local production in Nigeria. One of the major recipe to success is putting in place a central refrigeration system where farmers can cut losses in case of life threatening situations in the farm and to also make provision of grants and small loans with less bottlenecks that farmers can easily access.
Reap Africa initiative is poised to promote agribusiness enterprises in Africa.
