Nigeria is an untapped potential agricultural power house, with 165 million population projected to grow to 470 million by 2050. Farmers in Nigeria struggle to increase yield, tore produce, get their goods to market on time, and secure a fair price for their produce. This is the problem Agrilet is trying to solve through its platform for microfunders to invest in farms and food-processing related projects.

Agrilet is giving farmers access to a larger market, machineries, and thus improved farm inputs, and to microfunders, impressive return-on-investment, fulfillment of dreams, and thus an increased alternative source of income. The agricultural platform is targeting the $24.7 billion market in Africa, starting with Nigeria as its point of entry.
