Profession and place of Work:
I am currently the Project Manager at Afrimash.com (www.afrimash.com), an online Agric. Marketplace & Community. Mostly, I am involved in business development activities e.g. discussing with agro-innovators to help promote their products and ideas through the Internet. My mission is to ensure their products are available and delivered everywhere in Nigeria.
I am always looking for manufacturers and importers of good quality agricultural equipment and products to help sell their products online. With the support of Afrimash.com, they can increase their turnover and expand their businesses.
I also work with outstanding agricultural writers and researchers to promote their content through afrimash.com.
Impact of what you do on animal and human health:
At Afrimash, we provide an online hub for innovative ideas, products and people relevant to agriculture in Nigeria. We facilitate agricultural networking and knowledge sharing as well as buying and selling of agricultural products. Through our website – www.afrimash.com – we help alleviate the difficulty in accessing farm inputs, agricultural produce and good quality information.
We help producers of livestock and processors of livestock products find and buy all the products they need easily and safely. If necessary, we assist them with the delivery of their products.
We also provide online networking opportunity on afrimash.com to connect with other agro-innovators, share ideas and find information relevant to your work.
We serve humanity by ensuring we promote good quality and innovative products that are best for the market.
Prospective future work:
In the future, we plan to promote agro-innovative ideas, products and people across Africa.
We want to be at the forefront of the challenge to supply the world food. We believe Africa is the future food supplier to the world and Nigeria is the giant of Africa. We want to be the perfect partner to help the growing agricultural community in Nigeria, and Africa succeed in providing the world food.
Advice for aspiring professionals:
Nigeria (as well as Africa) is a land of opportunities. It may be tempting to look for a better life outside the shores of Nigeria; but the value of the myriad of opportunities is much greater than the immediate gratification people get from leaving the country for good. So gentleman and lady, get to work on your ideas for your country. Use your talent to make Nigeria a better place.
You will make a lot of money eventually. If you are a manufacturer or importer of agricultural products, Afrimash can help you increase your turnover.
