Vivian enrolled in the Delta State Government’s Youth Agricultural Entrepreneurs Programme (YAGEP) in the 2019/2020 cycle in which she was supported in Plantain Production under the Brown YAGEP category. Hear her.
“I had 150 plantain stands when I enrolled in the programme, but I received support of 1,000 plantain suckers, 14 bags of fertilizers and agro-chemicals.
The support package helped my business to grow. I have diversified into cassava farming. I have four acres of cassava farm. YAGEP has improved my living standard and I am grateful to the state government.
