BETTERLIFE FEEDERS AGRICULTURAL COOPERATIVE INVESTMENT AND CREDIT SOCIETY LTD.   RS 30163

BACKGROUND:

PORT HARCOURT BETTERLIFE FEEDERS (RS 30163) is an Agricultural Cooperative Investment and Credit Society Limited. BeTTerLIFE Feeders is a government approved Cooperative. We are one of the leading Agriculture based Co-operative in Africa. Our head office is situated in Port Harcourt, Rivers State of Nigeria; duly registered with Rivers State Ministry Of Commerce on the 19th of May, 2016 and as BETTERLIFE CONCEPT INTERNATIONAL LTD. with Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), Abuja FCT, Nigeria on 15th March, 2017.

The idea of setting up an Agro Cooperative Society initiated by Engr. Olaniyi Mayowa Animashaun, a seasoned trainer in Creative Agro Business Setup, Management and Consultancy. This idea turned into a vision in an agro training classroom where it was unanimously agreed by all the agro trainees (i.e. about 135 agro students) who were participants of the Helping Hands (H2i) Agro Skill Acquisition and Empowerment Program held on 18th– 21stAugust 2015 in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.

The Vision began with a formal Registration of the Co-operative as AGROBiz Cooperative Concept, Elelenwo, Port Harcourt (RS28936) and propelled by like mind who are currently with the Cooperative Society as the co-founder of PH BetterLife Feeders ACICS Ltd, great people like Pst. Rotimi Afekhuai, Mr. Austin Oleh Kalu, Engr. Clement Okechukwu, Mr. Ajayi Michael, Miss Tamunoibim Apiafi, Mrs. Waidi Happiness, Engr. Olusegun Funso, Engr. Fisayo M. Animashaun, etc. Along the line of our early agro operation, great personality like Aposle Joseph Uzomba, Mr. Danjuma Aliyu, Pst. Godwin Chibuenyi, Pst. Simon T. Mayah, Miss Ukala Nteijah Monday, and many other great people to mention just a few also joined the Cooperative Society. Right from the H2i agro training classroom, we all believed in the concept of coming together as a force of young and vibrant agro team of investors who would drive the vision by building a team of about Ten Million membership based Cooperative within and outside Nigeria to actively promote and develop agriculture in Nigeria as a nation and Africa as a continent.

BetterLife Feeders Agricultural Co-operative Investment and Credit Society Ltd. originated from AGROBIZ Cooperative Concept in order to expand on AGROBiz initial vision of just agricultural and agro-allied based business ideology to other SME (Small and Medium Scale Enterprise).
