NKECHI ISEDE is the CEO of Vicchs Nk located at YAGEP Farm Cluster, Owa-Alero. She is an SSCE holder who enrolled into the 2018/2019 Cycle as a Brown YAGEPreneur in poultry production. She shares the impact of this intervention on her business and family.
“I received 400 broilers, 150 bags of bird feed, drinkers, feeders and stove from the job creation bureau as a Brown YAGEP support package. I suffered some setbacks due to high mortality. Nevertheless, I am still in business and striving to grow my business. Currently, I have 250 broilers and 37 turkeys because I recently sold off my mature stock.
“YAGEP has impacted my life positively. From the proceeds from poultry business, I bought a motor bike for mobility. From it, I pay my children’s school fees, pay my house rent and feed my children. I am working towards owning a personal land.”
