Agribusiness has the greatest potential of having the greatest impact in poverty eradication.

Financial security and employment opportunities are all the youth need in order to get involved in agriculture. As children we’ve always nursed dreams of becoming bankers due to translating their dealing with money to mean having plenty of it and associating farming to lack of it. To change this perception, there is need for appropriate policies to be put in place. Policies that will make land accessible to the youths, policies that will support implementation of an infrastructure that supports production and the development of financial loans directed at the youth in agriculture and support agribusiness.
Agribusiness holds the greatest potential of emancipating the greatest number of youth from the yolks of poverty and unemployment among the emerging markets. About 70% of the world’s poor live in rural areas where agriculture is the major economic activity and therefore it should be prioritized due to its potential for broad development impact especially in poverty reduction.
