Nigeria, the continent’s most populous country with over 200 million people, mostly young, offers good business opportunities for Club members, as the maintenance support for agricultural machinery.
The need to improve on agricultural productivity has been one of the major problems faced by the developing countries. Nigeria is one of such countries that are heavily hit by this peculiar problem. The maintenance and servicing of agricultural equipment (particularly tractors) remain a concern for Nigerian farmers. Because of a shortage of parts, tractors are sometimes out of commission for weeks.
It should be noted that government both at federal and state levels have made some advancements in machinery utilisation. In fact, in spite of these, a lot of constraints are still militating against agricultural machinery utilisation such as: lack of competent management and strict supervision; poor training of personals responsible for operating, repairing and maintaining the equipment; inadequate workshop and repair facilities; lack of skilled and responsible operators; lack of adequate availability of cash and credit when needed and inefficient utilisation of the machineries.
For that, from the Club we’re looking for companies that can provide an efficient service in fixing tractors or industrial agricultural implements in Nigeria, to put them in contact with our members and develop a new business opportunity.
