Meet Okopedi Ubong Ubon, an entrepreneur from Ibiaku Ikot Use in Ibiono Ibom Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State. He is into farming business. Farming business is one of the most lucrative businesses in Nigeria and the world at large because food comes from the farm and people need food to survive.  Ubong ventured into his line of business in 2017 and he affirms that one can make money from his business.

Farming business requires a considerable amount of capital to start if you want to make a profit and Ubong started his business with a startup capital of four hundred thousand naira (N400,000).

He started his business on one plot of land but now, he has been able to expand it to different locations which is the success recorded in the business. The failures recorded in the business are insecurity, unavailability of water in some of the business locations and not having access to government grants or assistance from AKADEP, etc.

Ubong has never thought about giving up in the face of challenges, the passion he has for his business makes him remain in the business.

One cannot ultimately do farm business alone because of the work involved in it, so Ubong does not work alone, he engages people to work with him and his business is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission.

Policymakers and investors can assist Ubong with funds to expand his business.
