    Dear sir/ma
    Am so glad to inform you about the relentless effort of youths these days to be empowered and be self employed,but the major set back to us as a youth is funds. We youths are ready to support the society and the nation at large but the question is are they ready to support us? My name is Adeniyi James Adekola and am proudly Nigeria and also a farmer and this is little of what I have to share.


    Am so happy for this opportunity. GOD bless you
