Originally, the idea was merely to produce food, but after entering a bigger market for our agricultural produce, we realized a vast and ready market, and the social and economic benefits of the industry encouraged us. We resolved to push our focus towards increasing the production of both food and cash crops in our community. To boost production, we started offering free agricultural advice to subsistence farmers and youth on how they can increase production.
Of course, we encountered some challenges both natural and man-made, but we were determined to make a difference. Yes, some people saw it as a minor cause, but we had a bigger vision to achieve. Since then, we have been helping people to get involved and reap from the agriculture sector. More importantly, due to the public outcry about poor skills for farmers, poor yields, food insecurity, and the increasing level of poverty, we decided to establish a company in the name of AGRIBANKS Ltd. We have significantly grown bigger to offer other unique services. Our target is to scale up internationally, impact people's lives, and serve as a food basket in the shortest time possible.
We have envisioned contributing to food security through the “Investment and Agricultural Inclusion Approach" (AIA), acting as a business enabler to allow organizations, and different groups of people including youth, working-class, urban residents, and people living in the diaspora to invest in farming. We anticipate that if the majority of the world’s population is directly or indirectly engaged in agriculture, we can produce enough food and cash crops to match everyone’s needs.
Agriculture can be defined as the practice and science of farming that covers animals and crop production. However, at AGRIBANKS Ltd, we say it’s beyond the term “farming,” it’s business, free enterprise, engineering, science, energy, technology, information, jobs, wealth, and healthy. We continuously offer public awareness and train individuals and groups to acquire skills and relevant knowledge about farming.
