Ms Adama Jallow is making great move as she passionately focused her venture into seedling nursing in Serrekunda.

A 2018 Global Youth Innovative Network (GYIN) award winner, Ms Jallow is the proprietress of SJ Farmyard Enterprise.

She told Youth Forum that she started her agribusiness outlet in early 2018 with the support of her father, who inspired her to venture into seedlings preparation and selling.

After engaging in this viable business for some time with passion, Miss Jallow then secured another piece of land at Sotokoi in West Coast Region to continue farming.

She said he employed youth to assist her in the farm.

Ms Jallow stated that she is satisfied with her sale which, according to her, is a lucrative business as she made good sales in 2018.

She revealed that she sold seedlings range from mangoes, oranges, pawpaw, avocado and coconut to earn good income.

She planned to expand her business and engage in poultry production.

‘‘Definitely I need support to expand my business in future and I without support it would be very difficult for me to expand my business,’’she said.

She challenged government to support her to expand her business.

She said if government aid young people in the country it would prevent them from engaging into criminal activities and contribute their quota to the national development.

‘‘Government should support youth in the country to create employment opportunity for them’’, she pointed out.
