Mr. Yinusa observed that the comprehensive training, spanning six to seven weeks is aimed at fostering entrepreneurship skills among the students, adding that the company would recognise the most outstanding group at the end of the Training.

Mr. Yinusa revealed that each participating group would receive a generous donation of 1,000 to 2,000 birds, along with all essential requirements for feeding and raising them throughout the training period.

Beyond the technical aspects of poultry farming, Mr. Yinusa emphasised the entrepreneurial focus of the programme, noting that the Training would cover both technical and business dimensions.

He provided insights into preparing cash flow statements, business proposals, budgets, basic accounting, and establishing personal poultry businesses.

FUNAAB’s collaboration with Amo Farma Hatchery Siberier Limited reflects a commitment to fostering practical skills and an entrepreneurial mindset among students, paving the way for the emergence of competent and self-reliant agribusiness professionals.
