7 Simple Ways Of Generating Capital For Agricultural Investment

Farmers especially (peasant farmers) cannot generate enough capital from their savings to finance their farm business therefore there is need to source for fund/capital.
Capital or money can be secured for agricultural investment in two ways:
1.   External Generation of Capital: This is a situation whereby capital is generated for agricultural investment from outside (not from the farmer’s account).

2.   Borrowing: This means taking money on loan with the understanding that it will be returned as agreed upon at an appointed time. 

       Money/capital could be from any of these agencies.
i.             Co-operative society
ii.           Commercial banks e.g. First bank, Union Bank, StanbicIBTC Bank, GT bank, Skye bank, Zenith Bank e.t.c
iii.          Agricultural banks e.g. National Agricultural  and Rural Development Bank
iv.          Micro-finance banks and Institutes e.g. SEAP Microfinance, other microfinance or micro credit lenders.
v.            Money Lenders
vi.          Friends and relatives
vii.      Government approved agencies such as National directorate of employment (NDE) Fadama project, rice project etc.
      Internal generation of capital:This is a situation whereby the farmer generates the fund or money to finance his agricultural business without going outside to borrow. 
       Money can be secured internally by:
  i. Personal savings.

 ii. Sales of farmer/farm’s asset.

 iii. Gifts.
