I’m glad you are reading this. A little about me… Prior to Jan 2013 I spent approximately 6 years working in the Technology and Banking sector. Then I woke up one morning and decided you know what: I want to be a farmer! Actually it really didn’t happen like that… I spent a few years researching on what area of development and business I wanted to go into and decided that Agriculture was it. I’m a management accountant aspiring to become one of the so-called next generation of African farmers. What do I mean by next generation of African farmers?! I hope to figure that out with you on this blog.
Why have I chosen to go into agriculture? I have many reasons which you will discover as you read my blog but at the heart of it is the fact that I truly believe that agriculture is key to enabling Africa realise its potential. I am deeply convinced that agriculture will continue to be the biggest employer of labour in most African countries. When we get it right, Agriculture will play a fundamental role in lifting millions permanently out of poverty.
What type of community do I hope to build with our blog? For now my vision is that I attract and interact with individuals who are interested in agriculture. Who have read about or heard about or are interested in becoming the next generation of African farmers.
As time goes on we will get to know about each other. I hope you actively participate on our blog. I look forward to our many conversations!
Many thanks for taking the time out to read my blog. I’m really glad you did.
