When we hear that Africa will be salvaged beyond measure by the agricultural sector, it is so true. With the high rate of unemployment and the harsh economic realities in Africa, the best bet is to get busy in the fields. Nakku Justine is a proof.
Many more Africans are indeed trying out their hands in agriculture. So far the results have been astounding. They set out to better their situations and before you know it, they become money bags. Africa is witnessing a rise in the number of millionaire farmers.
In the jet age, farming is a road less traveled in Africa. However, this young Kenyan agro-millionaire, Nakku Justine has shocked all who care to know with the success of her agro-preneurship.
Nakku is a 25-year-old Kenyan who has become one of the green field sensations in recent times. While many thrive and strive to land a well-paying corporate job, she took the greener path. After her appearance on a Nigerian media platform, Nakku has become yet another source of motivation to hit the farms and make serious money.
Nakku has a 6 acre farm in Kenya. She is successfully running a diversified farm enterprise. She has plant/vegetable and poultry farms where she produces cereals, carrots, cabbage, milk and poultry products. Nakku Justine has joined the league of Annie Nyaga who makes as much as $6000 per harvest season from farming and trading watermelons.
The first step towards a self-sufficient African economy is to first ensure that the food that we eat are efficiently supplied within the continent. That way most manufacturing agricultural firms will be boosted. Lately the Ghanaian government banned importation from several African countries. This would not have been possible if there was no internal substitute for the banned products.
When more people venture into this sector, local farmers for one will have relevance. Secondly the nation gets to save and divert the importation money into another important aspect in the country. For instance, imagine what the $2 billion scheduled for rice importation in Nigeria can do for the nation’s economy?
