Here’s What You’ll Be Getting From #Train2Earn
Program in South-West Nigeria.
Recently, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) latest figures show that South West unemployment rate is at 17.3% of the estimated population of 40,786,735. What this means is that there are 6.92 million unemployed people in Lagos, Oyo, Ogun, Ondo, Osun and Ekiti states. The Malaysia and Indonesia serve as good examples to show that our employment fortune as a nation can change positively if the younger generation is supported with the right training and facilities. According to the World Bank, agriculture remains Nigeria’s biggest employer of labour.
But The Big Question Is: How Can We Make Agriculture More Profitable And Lucrative For Rural To Urban People And Agro-Related Practitioners?
This is the goal and vision behind #Train2Earn. Our goal is to build the largest training and mentorship platform for grooming successful agripreneurs in Africa. To achieve this, we have designed a guaranteed system that will deliver the future of agribusiness and create sustained wealth for agripreneurs using… Training Mentorship Networking Access to funding
Meet Your Facilitator - Africanfarmer Mogaji
Hi...I am Africanfarmer Mogaji, the CEO of FarmCredit.ng and also the current Chairman, Agriculture and Agro-Allied Group, Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
I started Agribusiness in secondary school with 30 chicks and finished with 200 yam heaps, 400 cassava heaps, 100 chicks, rabbits and Guinea pigs. You’re probably thinking I wasn’t named Africanfarmer from birth, You are right! I changed my name to "African farmer" legally 17 years ago.
With over 20 years of experience and authority in agribusiness, I am passionate about people's development in the agric sector and for decades, I have expressed this by facilitating programs in Fate Foundation, Enactus, Leap Africa, National Directorate of Employment, Ashoka Change Makers platform and FCMB Sheventures Program etc.
In 2014, I was among a few agripreneurs to benefit $40,000 from the Bill gates Foundation through ASHOKA Fellowship.
I give back to the community by hosting “AgricBusiness with Africanfarmer” on Lagos Talks 91.3FM, 5.30 pm on Mondays and for over two years, we now have over 300,000 weekly listeners. We also just launched our online radio “Agric.fm”, where we talk about everything agribusiness.
I am also the author of “Farming By Revelation” and the co-author of “Green Gold”.
The #Train2Earn program was conceived as a wealth creation system for new people seeking to become agripreneurs in Nigeria.

“I attended a free seminar organized by Africanfarmer Mogaji, from which I gained insights to start a maize farm in 2014. I initially started with 5 acres, but 6 years later, after putting all I learned to work, commitment to studying and learning new things on the way, I now produce over 700 acres of corn annually”
CEO Abiodun Farms
“I have attended trainings set up by Africanfarmer Mogaji and implemented ideas that have propelled our business. Africanfarmer is a mentor and coach that has provided different opportunities to market our products at different premium events.
