The Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL Plc) under its Service to Enterprise in Agribusiness (SEA) model, has partnered with public institutions in possession of agricultural land assets to prepare public servants for life after retirement.
Under the SEA model, NIRSAL partners with public institutions to prepare civil servants through training, finance facilitation and market linkage for agricultural primary production.
In pursuit of this programme, Persecondnews.com reports that the organization disclosed through its official Twitter handle that it recently hosted some civil servants from the various ministries in Rivers State to a workshop on the NIRSAL SEA model.
The non-bank financial institution, a corporation of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), said capacity building was critical to unlocking the potential for sustainable agribusiness in Nigeria.
“NIRSAL, in collaboration with relevant partners, provides training and capacity building programs for actors in the pre-upstream, upstream, midstream and downstream segments of agricultural value chains.
“It strengthens the capacity of financiers and investors in understanding the agriculture sector, streamlining credit assessment processes for agribusiness transactions and agribusiness finance product development,” NIRSAL stated.
