I am a big farmer who does not farm. Yet, from RIFAN to Seeds association, we are like families.It was a beauty earlier in the year walking into the reception hall of Intercontinental Hotel Lagos to see many farmers shouting “Professor, gaisuwa”. They were there for an executive meeting. Months before, we gave them Zenvus Boundary which cut something that used to cost N270,000 to N7,000, helping many to comply with a Central Bank of Nigeria land requirement documentation to access the Anchor Borrowers Fund.
Yet, despite our progress, we continue to see major frictions: too much information asymmetry on the farm equipment nexus. Fascinatingly, we saw a company doing something in that space. So, people, I am happy that I have joined FarmHire.ng as a Board member and shareholder.
FarmHire does one thing well: link owners of farm equipment and broad farm inputs, and farmers. We will bring our resources to help make it better – they are already amazing.
You can buy tractors, and broad farm equipment, and put in the portal for guaranteed monthly income. Of course if you already own farm equipment, FarmHire will like to have them in the portal. Oluseyi Agbola is leading this mission – an amazing young man who is possibly in a farm as I write.
FarmHire.ng is Nigeria’s number one website providing an online platform for farmer to farmer equipments and job hiring. Equipment owners and government agencies can add their equipments and hiring price to connect with farmers that need to book them. Also, any agricultural related job an be easily posted to get qualified professionals to apply. There is also an opportunity for farmers to post free ads about their products, equipments and land for sale and interested persons can contact them. Farmers’ forum allows farmers to post their questions discovery or questions, comment and get comments from other farmers. The platform solves many problems at a time and keep farmers well engaged for products, equipments and skill sharing.
