Call for Enrollment for the NIRSAL PLC Agro Geo-Cooperative Formation Process

The Nigerian Incentive-Based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL PLC) is calling on all smallholder farmers, farmer leaders and aggregators to key into its Agro Geo-Cooperative model created for the purpose of sustainable farm/field structuring and governance, to enable sustainable access to finance, quality inputs and structured markets through NIRSAL’s facilitation.

The exercise aims at creating 16,000 Agro Geo-Cooperatives (ranging from 10 hectares to 20,001 hectares and above) on 4 million hectares of farmland and enrolling about 8 million farmers across Nigeria who are expected to produce about 12 million metric tonnes of Grain Product Equivalent (GPE) annually over the medium to long term.

It will also serve as a means of employment and a source of income generation for organised Agro Geo-Cooperatives during this pandemic.
