My Business

My Busine I have been involved in the
cultivation of food crops. My love for agriculture did not stop though I am a Marketing manager at Ahenfo Radio Marking Department. My long life dream of becoming an entrepreneur motivated me to start an agro chemical shop in my community. I did a survey in my area and realized that most of the farmers in my community are gradually
changing from the traditional method of
using just hoes and cutlasses in farming and have embraced the modern trends of cultivating on large scale, which can be made possible through the use of machinery and agro chemicals.
However, the few agro chemical shops that were available at the time were into what I term as “just buying and selling” without educating our farmers, most of whom are illiterates on the right and appropriate procedures on how to use these chemicals they sell to them.
My passion to offer quality and better services to farmers in my locality so that the chemicals they use in farming wouldn’t have any adverse effect on consumers led to me opening an agro chemical shop in 2012.
After the necessary education and equipping myself with the necessary knowledge concerning the application and use of agro chemicals and use of farm implements and machinery, I employed one person to help me manage the shop and he takes charge when I am not physically present.
I am now able to support my family and other ventures I enter into due to the proceeds I earn from my Agro chemicals shop.
