Obot Umoh is courageous, accountable, and has the right network and the drive to succeed and work in a team. He has the conviction that climate change can be solved by putting the best practices to reduce post-harvest losses.

The rise in climate losses, the lack of climate-smart farming, and the quest to end gender inequality made him venture into his business in 2021.

Obot avers that the business is scalable and can be duplicated and is low cost effective in terms of cost of production. He further explains that his business uses solar energy and it is a Climate Smart Technology and the business sells excess energy to immediate small businesses.

Obot started his business with a startup capital of five thousand dollars ($5,000). The high point of the business is the ability to employ 10 staff, deploy 10 women cooperative groups, and make a revenue of over five hundred thousand naira (₦500,000). Moreover, the low point in the business is the high taxation, fluctuating prices of solar panels and batteries, and poor government policies.

Obot has thought about giving up in the face of challenge especially due to the high forex exchange rate, poor government policies and lack of interest in climate change policies.

His business provides affordable energy solutions to rural farmers such as solar milling services, and drone management and irritation services. His business is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission.

Obot acknowledges Tony Elumelu, Bill Gates, and Elon Musk as his business mentors and he wants policymakers and investors to assist him with funds and mentorship opportunities.
