ROYAL FARMERS ASSEMBLY (RFA) LIMITED BRIEF HISTORY

This Cooperative, Royal Farmers Assembly Limited, started with the sum of Fifty Naira.

We sourced, by begging for this money to purchase improved Okro seedlings from our native market Orie-Achina.

Luckily, Mrs. Florence Nweke  assisted the cooperative, purchasing the Fifty Naira Okro Seedlings and:

the cooperative were able to gather and planted 285 Okro Seedlings and 570 Vegetable Pumpkin (Ugu) Seedlings on this day the 24th March 2016:

At Royal Farmers Assembly (RFA) “Test Farm A,” located at Obi Ezenweke in Iduu Sub-Village in Umueleke Village, Achina, in Aguata L.G.A in Anambra State Nigeria.

Nevertheless, the cooperative later gathered more seedlings and planted another One Thousand Five Hundred (1,500) Pumpkin Vegetable Seedlings (Nkpuru Ugu), mixed on the same Test Farm A.

Note:

On RFA first planting of 24th March 2016, before the planting, the name “Royal Farmers Assembly” was chosen by the trio:

Nweke Ifeanyi Green, Ezeh Josephat Izuchukwu and Samuel Nmokwe; who was later not active; leaving only the first two with the Royal Farming activities.

Though, the idea of Vegetable Pumpkin (Ugu) Farming came from one of the trio; Ezeh Josephat Izuchukwu:

Who is presently the First “Igwe Omekaodinma” of Saint Joseph Catholic Youths in Achina, and Okpala Idegwu 1st; who suggested:

“Lets Farm Vegetable Pumpkin (Ugu).” Nweke Ifeanyi Green thought of it immediately and said “We need to develop it into a mighty registered Cooperative Society.”

That was on 14th February 2016; at the home of one of the trio`s friend/in-law, Izuchukwu Ugbaja, who came back from Malesia.

The above idea was accepted and consolidated the day the trio, did the RFA first planting; precisely on 24th March 2016:

After visiting the first Vegetable Pumpkin Test Farm cultivated beside a River close to Samuel Nmokwe`s home by Ezeh Josephat Izuchukwu.

Progress

In furtherance, when eventually the RFA Vegetable Pumpkin seedlings began to germinate and sprout; at the Royal Test Farm A:

At Obi Ezenweke, the home of Nweke Ifeanyi Green, in Umueleke Village in Achina; many friends started joining.

Because the duo Nweke Ifeanyi Green and Eze Josephat Izuchukwu did not plan for market.

The RFA first harvest when the planted vegetable pumpkin at Royal Test Farm A got matured, nearly discouraged the cooperative:

When the duo took to sale at Nkwo Umuchu market, and faced market price down.

But later ended selling at Eke Ekwulobia market in Aguata.

Royal Farmers Assembly Ltd: Progress

From the RFA (Royal Farmers Assembly) first sale, the cooperative made more than Three Thousand Naira:

And proceeded to the Bank closer; as decided, and agreed, and opened an account with the:

Achina Micro Finance Bank in Achina; with the name ROYAL FARMERS ASSEMBLY; obtaining the account NO. 0130003912 on June 2nd 2016:

With NO. 33 Iduu Road (Obi Ezenweke) Umueleke Village Achina; as the RFA Limited account Address.

This was Three Months after the first group planting of 24th March 2016; at Royal Test Farm A.

As time went on, the RFA Vegetable Pumpkin(Ugu) was over growing; and their was No Market for it as the cooperative required.

Later, the RFA Cooperative Limited had advert on the abs (Anambra Broadcasting Service) Radio:

That the Anambra State Government, through the Anambra State Ministry of Agriculture, “Export Vegetables, including Vegetable Pumpkin (Ugu).”

Move that was productive

RFA Limited had a meeting, and decided to visit the Anambra State Ministry of Agriculture; at ADP (Agriculture Development Programme) Awka.

When the RFA got to the ADP Awka on 28th of September 2016, RFA later met with:

who later same day after serious Agricultural interrogations and Test; introduced the RFA to:

Hope

The Anambra State Director of Technical Services (DTS) Mr. Emeka Okoli on his visit, advised the RFA Cooperative to get:

properly registered with the Anambra State Ministry of Agriculture by “Mixing Youths and Women into the Cooperative”

Just like said at ADP Awka by Mrs. Tessy U. Okoye; for RFA Cooperative to be benefiting from the Anambra State Ministry of Agriculture Programmes.

After sharing with the RFA, Mr. Emeka Okoli visited the Royal Farmers Assembly Test Farm and the RFA proposed group Farm site:

At Ikpa Akawodida in Umueleke Village Achina and took the cooperative Farms Coordinate.

When the DTS Mr. Emeka Okoli left, the RFA Cooperative proceeded for the Royal Farmers Assembly Cooperative Society registeration:

At ADP Awka; as the RFA was directed; and commenced the RFA Cooperative registration.

Before RFA anchored its Cooperative Society Certificate, RFA was shortlisted among the selected active Cooperatives:
