I love processing garri locally during my tender age. please i fall under category of adult competition 2021. I decide to come into the business because many citizens are bitterly crying for quality garri that the current garri consumed by them is full of sand particles and does not last after eating. Also broadcast initially from government that those in agriculture will be supported handsomely, my product will be quite different from others because i will not allowed the raw material that is cassava tubers stay more than one day while others allowed it stay more than three days. And rampant supply of raw material is in my locality and adequacy that was reason why i choose these line of business

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve >> The fear of failure. So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
