An agriculture investment company, Heart and Capital Nigeria Limited, has urged youths, especially the unemployed, to embrace agriculture to be self-employed in a lucrative venture and enrich the nation’s economy.
Speaking at the launch of its new agricultural business project called ‘eterno’ in Ilorin, Abdulquawiy Olododo president and co-founder of the organization, said that the organization, as part of its efforts to promote agriculture among youths, trains 4,000 youths on agribusiness every year.
Olododo, who said eterno is planned to reduce unemployment, improve the economic life of people, added that it would save the country from suffering the negative effects of climate change.
He said that eterno is a Spanish word meaning timelessness, adding that the project is a cashew investment product that allows individuals and corporate bodies to have direct access to returns from a cashew plantation over a period of 20 years, using modern technology to build a bridge between the farm and the investors, while ensuring the most efficient products for great returns.
He said that the product has been made so easy that individuals can invest in one unit of cashew tree for as low as N10,000.
Also speaking, the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of the organization, Umar Oba Adelodun, enjoined students, young school leavers, other Nigerian youths and big investors to take advantage of this Eterno investment opportunity to create wealth for themselves.
