"This loan will empower Omolola to expand her farming business and become an Agripreneur."

I am an agropreneur who believes agriculture can provide a sustainable livelihood if the best agronomic practices are well employed.

Pacesetter Farmers Association is a registered Cassava Youth farmers’ organization located in Olorunsogo Village of Ifo Local Government of Ogun State. The land proposed for farming is located at Olorunda Village. The land is rented by the group and is well known for its productive capability.

Cassava is a perennial woody shrub with an edible root, which grows in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. Cassava originated from tropical America and was first introduced into Africa in the Congo basin by the Portuguese around 1558. Today, it is a dietary staple in much of tropical Africa.

It is rich in carbohydrates, calcium, vitamins B and C, and essential minerals. However, nutrient composition differs according to variety and age of the harvested crop, and soil conditions, climate, and other environmental factors during cultivation.

Commercial cassava farming can create a huge profit if a suitable variety of cassava is cultivated with good farm management skills.
