Recently, I became given a assignment by means of my boss to find out some sure matters on agriculture. As I changed into doing the studies, I learnt many stuff and discovered loads. I started with Rwanda, due to the fact I am going to the jap a part of Africa. I observed 2 sisters, Fidelis Karangwa and Consolata Nakure who’ve been doing excellent in agriculture. When they completed from college, they stored some money for growing jobs themselves at the same time as still having paid employment.
They had the dream to emerge as farmers, they went to Kigali Farms to recieve training on cultivating mushroom. They attempted in the first example, they failed however they kepy trying until they have been successful. They have made a call for themselves in Kigali and are schooling youths and local farmers on mushroom farming. Presently, they have empowered and employed 10 humans.
I look ahead to visiting them in Kigali.
They succeeded because of 3 motives:
1. Determination: They were decided to grow to be farmers, a few circle of relatives and friends tried to deter them. Luckily for them, their dad became supportive of thier dream. Papa turned into helping them with finance and advice, they were determined.
2. Commitment: These 2 sisters have been committed and severe in becoming today’s agricpreneur in Rwanda, they were by no means discouraged by using thier gender status. They in no way noticed themselves as slay queens or massive girls, they knew what they need to attain.
3. Patience: Thier mushroom failed inside the first instance, they didn’t surrender, They went to another education and their staying power and patience later paid off for them.
I need to commend President Paul Kagame of Rwanda for keying into agriculture, 75% Of Rwandans are farmers. This is what they may be using to construct thier state and financial system after the 1994 Genocide. They are doing brilliant in mushroom, tea and coffee.
To my Nigerian sisters, forestall pursuing white collar jobs, move for agriculture. Start something and do something, forestall blaming the government or lack of funds.
Instead of buying Brazilian hair, fixing nails, shopping for large telephones and pricey dresses, decrease your spending, move into farming.
Take movement these days and see how helps will roll in.
