Nigerian wins World Bank’s youth entrepreneurship scheme.

For the second year running, a Nigerian has won the Ideas for Action Initiative, a youth competition on financing for development, organised by the World Bank Group in collaboration with the Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research.

Nigeria’s winning proposal titled: Kitovu, came out tops among 743 proposals from 118 countries, while Uganda’s proposal-Gifted Hands and India’s Agratam were adjudged first and second runner ups in this year’s competition.

Nwachinemere Emeka Obewe, who initiated the proposal, explained that the platform sought to create market access for smallholder farmers in distant locations by using web, mobile and SMS platforms to link farmers to processors.
