@Agro_Centre @MadedorVictoria @adeola_odedina @adexmee @wandieville @mfon_ngozi @yinkanubi @DorcasAOmole @Mz_Oladoyin A4 - I started the company because I wanted to diversify. B.O Farms Ltd is the 2nd official company I started so the knowledge gained from my first biz in oil and gas was readily available.It was meant to be a 2nd company but now the MAIN and ONLY biz .
@Agro_Centre @MadedorVictoria @adeola_odedina @adexmee @wandieville @mfon_ngozi @yinkanubi @DorcasAOmole @Mz_Oladoyin So I escaped some teething problems. I have had the good and the bad times; I do not pray for the ugly. In terms of my experience I realized what I expected in terms of returns, product demand is far from the reality.
@Agro_Centre @MadedorVictoria @adeola_odedina @adexmee @wandieville @mfon_ngozi @yinkanubi @DorcasAOmole @Mz_Oladoyin My first shock was when I read online before starting that plantain is 7months and it took almost 18months to harvest my 1st local sucker and sold at ridiculously low price. In my bid to also maximize the industry I invested into too many things at about the same time,
@Agro_Centre @MadedorVictoria @adeola_odedina @adexmee @wandieville @mfon_ngozi @yinkanubi @DorcasAOmole @Mz_Oladoyin got cash trapped at some point and also had management issues. Had to shut down on the various activities that are not yielding after proper review and decided to focus on top priorities.
