UZOEBO NIGERIA Africa’s Largest Agricultural Marketplace

Impact

UZOEBO is a bridge that links farmers that sell freshly produced agricultural products made in Nigeria directly to consumers. It gives farmers access to a larger market thereby increasing their sales, thus; creating wealth, improving standard of living, reduces GHG emission and revenue for the government. The platform creates employment for the vast majority of Nigerian youths. UZOEBO  makes it possible for households to access freshly produced agricultural products that will nourish their body and make them healthy when consumed.
