The efficacy and profitability of Farming have become More Profitable Than Gold. Yes, you read that right, “Farming”.
Africa is changing and you need to be a part of this big dream that’s finally coming true!
Like Author, Samuel Amartey-Armah rightly puts it:
A simple and but very profound question. The good news is, it’s a question that has been answered in his pioneer book “More Profitable Than Gold”
Food never goes out of fashion! This makes Agribusiness one of the best opportunities worldwide. Africa has a ready market and a high demand for agricultural produce. We currently spend billions of dollars every year to import grains, flour and all kinds of finished and semi-finished foods that can be produced locally.
As Africa’s economies continue to grow, the demand for raw materials will surely increase and create more interesting opportunities for agribusiness on the continent. This presents a huge opportunity for entrepreneurs who can provide cheaper and locally-grown alternatives to the food that Africa imports.
“More Profitable Than Gold seeks to help any serious-minded Agribusiness Entrepreneur start and run a successful Agribusiness with special focus on farming and be able to reap a relatively higher profitability than the average Gold business” – Samuel Amartey Armah
Agribusiness is very scalable. You can start with whatever you’ve got! Whether you own one plot of land or 10,000 hectares, agribusiness is one of few business opportunities that allows you to start on any scale, with whatever you have!
The opportunity to start small means that people with little capital can become part of Africa’s multi-billion dollar agribusiness industry. Because of the guaranteed demand for agricultural produce, that small vegetable or poultry farm in your backyard could just become a huge business tomorrow.
So, if you’re looking to start a business or invest in an industry that makes a significant social impact, provides jobs and creates sustainable wealth, More Profitable Than Gold is surely the way to go!
The potential of agribusiness in Africa is not just promising but immensely profitable. If would like to explore it much further, we have just the right resource for you!
5 Schools in Accra Receive ICT Equipment from Hubtel
Hubtel, Ghana’s leading bulk messaging and e-commerce platform provider, has donated ICT equipment to 5 schools in the Greater Accra Region as part of the company’s social responsibility commitments.
Hubtel is Ghana’s first tech company to become a member of the globally acclaimed Pledge 1% in 2017. By this, Hubtel pledged to give 1% of profits, 1% of products, and 1% of paid employee time towards charitable courses.
According to the founders of Pledge 1%, “the initiative is a global movement to create a new normal in which giving back is integrated into the DNA of companies of all sizes. Pledge 1% encourages and challenges individuals and companies to Pledge 1% of equity, profit, product, and/or employee time for their communities.”
The items donated to the 5 schools included laptops, projectors, projector screen stands, speakers, microphones, internet routers, and other computer peripherals. The schools were selected by employees of Hubtel after several visits to understand the challenges the schools face in the teaching and learning of information technology subjects.
The first donation at the St Paul Primary & Junior High School, Kpehe – Accra New Town, was received by the assistant headmaster of the school. Also present were the Chairperson of the PTA and a section of the school pupils.
Making the donations at St Paul Primary & JHS, Alex Bram, CEO of Hubtel emphasized that “We [Hubtel] ultimately want to transform the time for teaching and learning ICT into one filled with memorable moments and lots of fun. Schoolchildren should not be intimidated by technology. What we are doing is to provide early access to quality computer education for these pupils. We wish to see more school children take computing programs at higher levels because we believe the illiterates of the future will be people who cannot use computers”.
Other schools that received similar donations were Liberty Avenue 2 JHS at Adabraka, Dr. FV Nanka-Bruce Junior High at Korle-Gonno, the Nima Cluster of Schools, and the Bethel AME Zion JHS at Ashaiman.
These schools either had one PC for teaching and learning or none at all. In coming to the aid of the schools, school officials expressed relief and gratitude for the donations. Mr Michael Owusu, Assistant Headmaster at the St Paul Primary and JHS speaking to journalists after the donations was beside himself with joy, ”It really feels special. For more than three years, we’ve made frantic efforts to acquire these items with little success. Now, our pupils can have a real chance to understand better what they are taught. This is a moment of pride for us”.
Hubtel was founded in May 2005 on the campus of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi. In its 14 years of operation, the company has carved a reputation as a trusted and admirable tech brand across Africa. Starting with a bulk SMS messaging platform, the company has evolved into the e-commerce space – offering businesses tools to enhance the customer shopping experience; in-store, online, and mobile.
In becoming a signatory to Pledge 1%, Hubtel joined the ranks of Silicon Valley giants like Salesforce, Yahoo, Box, Glassdoor, DocuSign, and other leading companies in over 100 countries.
