Investment Opportunities in Agriculture with Wilma Aguele



the first arrival point for me was Sacramento so his San Joaquin part of San Joaquin Valley Northern California that grew tomatoes and all kinds of fruits and vegetables as far as you I can see in the mechanical organized efficient way so that always resonated in me that er you know we all grew up in the village using Cutlass and ho doing really tough war for our grandparents and I saw the implication of continuing in that mode of production that you can't attract the youths you can't have the women not looking older than their age just because they worked so hard on that the son and when you shake a village woman or man in agriculture in southern part of Nigeria where I grew up their hands were always hard as the back of a tree and I was worried and wonder and then of course they were always very feet and six-pack and all that so that also I was like hmm that's a good thing but primarily for food and profit I thought right now we only grow some we only do subsistence agriculture just to feed your immediate family and we don't really see it as a profits and even though in my neck of the wood it's mostly women young women and elderly women and middle-aged women and all that men that actually were in charge of farming production all the way through markets so I grew up Oh Eddie enthusiastic about famine before I left for university damn when I got back in I saw it as an alternative source of income rather than any been in a nine-to-five situation and as far as I'm concerned a lot of young people that are looking to be employed by big organizations or banks or government agriculture really will make you richer faster if there was infrastructure support to back their urban and peri-urban or rural communities if there was easy access to credit like the way you have it in developed world if there was a lot of education about the importance of what you eat because your DNA and your immune system its rooted in the place where you grow your food and also it'd be important for you to know that we men already used to process in our food is this the right package you know organizing ourselves to be to go into simple mechanized way of using tools rather than Cutlass and hoe that's really what drives everybody crazy when it comes to farming nobody really wants to do it the traditional way and I don't blame them so financing training and capacity-building educating them you really want to be rich consider agriculture it's not for the dumb people for the very smart people and it's not something that is not glamorous you should make it like the banjo music answer make it cool and sometimes people don't know the Kokua tree in their villages is actually what you get out of it is a chocolate you eat but you don't really know the genesis of the what you import and you eat and you think oh this is made in Europe or North America so your immune system your health systems your financial independence and also working for yourself and having respect for yourself you can derive all of that in agriculture business
