Community professionals to empower Nigerian poultry farms

One year after a pilot project of N1 million (6,400 Euro) yielded a turnover of N42 million (267,363 Euro) for a co-operative of Esan (Nigeria) poultry farmers, come plans for further investment.

The core investor in the project under the aegis of the Association of Esan Professionals has announced plans to invest and set up seven other co-operative groups in the five local councils of Esanland in Edo Central Senatorial District. According to the association, the new vision will form part of deliberations in its economic empowerment workshop slated for Irrua in Esan Central Council of Edo State later this month.
The chairman of the workshop planning committee, Mr. Sam Eigbokhan, said the vision began three years ago when the association decided to use the abundant skills available within it to create awareness of the economic potentials of Esanland.
He said the success story of the pilot project, which generated N42 million turnover in less than one year, has galvanised the association to venture into other key areas of the economy to help the Esan people out of poverty.
