AGRICULTURE INITIATIVE

We can end hunger and food insecurity in Nigeria, but it requires considerable investment in agriculture by the private sector and all stakeholders. Farmers must have direct access to tools and partnerships that solve their problems.

Hunger persists in Nigeria because of failed agricultural programs. Insecurity in agricultural communities is preventing farmers from accessing their farms. Other obstacles include poor funding, lack of modern agricultural tools, pests and fungi problems, and post-harvest and storage challenges.

STRATEGY

Our goal is to work with smallholder farmers to optimize agriculture and increase food production.
Through our partnership with farmers, we can provide investment, tools, and eco-solutions to solve problems affecting food production running through the whole value chain.

The Food Bank Initiative serves as a platform and a bridge for farmers, stakeholders, and donors to interact. We believe that by removing these barriers agricultural output will be increased.

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

  1. Partner with farmers to solve problems confronting them
  2. Provide seed money and financial investment and in return do crop sharing with farmers
  3. Negotiate with farmers to buy their harvest at a fair price and the gain transferred to consumers
  4. Participate in the government program to act as up takers to guarantee loans given to farmers
  5. Provide organic solutions that increase farm yields, eliminate pests and fungi without damaging our ecosystem or the environment
  6. Through our partnership increase capacity building in farming communities and reduce poverty among farmers
  7. Become a bridge for agricultural companies willing to invest in Nigeria

BENEFITS

Our involvement with agriculture will increase agricultural activities/food production, reduce the price of food, and increase family income which will affect the living standards of families and their children. Local farmers will be the bedrock of our food bank program.
