Blessing Agbajoh hails from Warri South Local Government Area and has an HND in Business Administration. She is a beneficiary of the Delta State Government’s Youth Agricultural Entrepreneurs Programme (YAGEP) in the 2016/2017 cycle.
She was trained and established in Fish Production. She is the CEO of Benga Global Enterprise located at Egbokodo-Itsekiri Fish Cluster. Six years later, Blessing is still in business. Hear her.
“From two fish ponds and two thousand fish, I have grown to five ponds and five thousand fish. I am still growing my business.
“From the proceeds from my farm, I contribute to the upkeep of my home and care for myself. I get contractsto process and package fish for clients. The return is good and encouraging.
“I have two casual staff whom I engage during sorting and harvesting. My enrollment in YAGEP helped me to be meaningfully engaged and out of the labour market.”
