Fresh From The Farm Agric World
Explain your project in details:
Fresh from the farm agric world ltd believe that if farmers are being supported either with finance, manpower, fertilizer etc, they will be motivated to farm more than the usual which will result to food security. We tend to partner with hundreds of farmers across Nigeria who have farm lands but lack the resources to cultivate it, by so doing we will not just make food available for the people, we will also make sure that farmers are richly appreciated for their efforts in tackling hunger issue. Our main objectives are; To provide fresh and healthy farm products across Nigeria, To encourage agriculture among the youths, to help farmers make money more than the usual and lastly, to bridge the gap of supply between the farmers an the consumers. We intend achieving this great project by utilizing the internet, radio and news papers in creating awareness, then we visit the rural areas state by state making our intentions known to them. From there, will will have farmers register with our company for free and then go into agreement on what they will revive from us and what we want in return. Our project is not meant only for the educated, so do as long as you are a farmer that has great piece of land you will love to cultivate, we will be honored to partner with you. Our vision is to have more farmers go into commercial farming while or mission is to be the most trusted farm product supplier in Africa.
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
If we are able to partner with let's say 100 farmers across Nigeria in the next 5 years, we are not just feeding the nation, we are enriching the farmers financially. Our aim is to help eradicate hunger and poverty in Africa. This project is a new project which does not have any great achievements yet but we have started buying farm products from farmers in the rural areas and bringing it to the urban market for sale. Also, we have a couple of acres of land where we farm some of the supplied products ourselves. We are a baby company with a matured dream and we believe with your help and support, we will achieve our goals.
Sustainability and future plans
We have already started buying farm products from the farmers and selling it at the urban markets. So far we are able to penetrate the Lagos market with our products. In the next 5 years we won't just be supplying farm products to the market, we will have companies come to the farms to buy what they need in bulk. We will appreciate individuals and companies to join us raise good funds in partnering with these farmers so we can eliminate hunger in the nation.
