Earlier this month, Agribusiness TV – The first youth in Agribusiness Web TV in Africa, was launched in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Since then, six videos from four countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon and Cote d’Ivoire) have been posted on our various online platforms.
Our first videos have covered different segments of the agricultural value chain, highlighting the stories and paths of six young entrepreneurs who embraced agriculture and paved their way to success. In total, these first six videos have had 154,572 views, 2,119 shares, and 865 people have downloaded our mobile application (English and French combined). These statistics are really beyond our expectations and we thank you for the support!
For us, it is important to have your opinion and feedback on our videos, which will guide our future productions. Therefore, we invite you again to watch the six videos that we have proposed this month and vote for your favourite one.
You can rate each video on our website (links below) or quickly take part in our poll.
