MADE Tasks Farmers On Loan Repayment


The Technical Assistant to the Market Development Programme in Niger delta (MADE), Mr. Loveday Alozie, has called on farmers in the state to pay up their loans to enable them receive more incentives.
Alozie, who spoke at a recent event for farmers in Port Harcourt, underscored the fact that most farmers do not comply with their loans repayment agreements.
