You may have to read this letter to the end to get an insight of above caption –Farming is the gateway to financial success.

 On October 2015 to be precise, I bought 4-5 seeds of ugwu at a local market in Alimosho Local Government, Lagos State at N50. Suddenly, the seeds just became scarce in the market. We couldn’t get the seeds until planting season of last year (March – April2016), when only 2-3 seeds were sold at N100. Can you imagine? Then, the story in the town was farmers were desperately seeking ugwu seeds to buy. I perceived this as an opportunity to make money.

I taught we should be producing ugwu seeds en-mass next planting season (2017). In other to save cost of getting seeds I decided to plant the few seeds I had. Wow! I came out with the first fruit of ugwu on the 20th   November, 2016.
