“Fish business is good business, but capital intensive due to the high cost of fish feeds. I currently have 2,000 fish. It is a business that that gives one adequate time to engage in other businesses. I am a transporter, a registered tricycle rider.
“I am happy to be a beneficiary of YAGEP. I produce cassava and yam. I got married from the proceeds from my farm and I was able to overcome life threatening family challenges through it. I want to say that the programme should be sustained to employ more youths and to give support to youths in agribusiness.”
