Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.

It all started 2007 when I first registered my first business name Lebuck Farm Services in the meddle belt of Nigeria where I worked with rural farmers with low income in the interior communities by creating marketing networking for farmer in the interior communities that is finding it challenging to market their farm produce because this was a major challenge and set back for farmers that can not market their farm produce for the sustenance of their families.
This moment sparked up the passion in me that I can create and make impact in my locality and community and be a role model that will encourage youths and women in the farming industry and creating job opportunities.
