‘’I was into pig farming for three years, but mybusiness was not growing because I had challenges like feeding the pigs. I enrolled into Brown YAGEP and God used the programme togrow and expand my business.
Three years after establishment, I have grown from having 10 pigs in three pens to having 25 pigs in 10 pens. I now feed them without stress.
I have made lots of sales. I save ₦150,000 whenever I sell my pigs. I have one employee. Iam married with children and I conveniently support my family.
I have diversified into pawpaw farming on arented plot of land. People buy pawpaw from me on a daily basis. I wish to acquire a personal land for expansion. I thank God and the state government for the opportunity and for helpingmy business to grow.
