The Ogun State Government says it is reinvigorating the state’s commercial agricultural credit scheme to provide revolving loans to farmers in the state to boost their farming activities.
The State’s Commissioner for Agriculture, Mrs Ronke Sokefun, gave a hint about the planned loan at a one day sensitisation programme for farmers on agricultural development projects in Abeokuta, the capital of the state.
She promised the farmers better times through favourable policies and programmes in the agricultural sector.
However, the commissioner asked farmers to pay up their loans so that others could benefit from the revolving loan.
Cassava, rice and palm farmers and those in production and the crops value chains are some of those targeted by the state to benefit from the programme.
