“The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.” — Steven Spielberg
I spent this weekend with my Mentee Mr Bubacarr Jaiteh of SONABA POULTRY FARM through the Startup Incubator Gambia business mentorship program. Bubacarr is a young and growing Agripreneur in Poultry farming.
We had great discussions on his passion, business, his long term goals and challenges faced in this particular sector as well as ways to mitigate them.
According to GIEPA, 283,000 eggs are consumed in The Gambia daily and only 15% of that number is produced by Gambian companies.
Bubacarr’s vision is to make Gambians the biggest contributors in Poultry products used in the country.
He started his business with 75 birds and grew to a total number of 1004 birds within a year.
I am so excited to be on this mentorship program with him and I cannot wait to see how far this business will go!
