Skyfox Limited, investors in agriculture, has paid dividend of Gh¢70,000.00 to over 20 farmer groups who invested in their integrated three year aquaculture and crop production programme introduced in Donkorkrom and some communities in the Afram Plains.

The programme, an initiative of Skyfox with finance support from the USAID and the Afram Plains Development Organization (APDO) is to help create employment for farmers especially the youth in the area.

At a short meeting to hand over the cheques to the beneficiary farmers at Donkorkrom in the Kwahu Afram Plains North District, Mr

Patrick Apoya, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Skyfox hinted that some of the groups had as much as 40 per cent of their investment as interest on shares bought from the company, adding that, it would go a long way to better the living standards of the farmers.

He indicated that, the gesture had brought the first phase of the programme to an end and said registration for the second phase was also opened.

Mr Apoya said the second phase would see a massive improvement as the company had plans of signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Afram Community Bank to aid beneficiaries financially.

Mr Apoya said the doors of the company were opened to investors, individuals, NGOs and corporate bodies who wanted to do business with the company to take advantage of the second phase of the programme.

This, Mr Apoya explained that the project was to bring more people on board so as to create job avenues for the unemployed across the district.

Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, Mr Osei Frimpong, one of the representative of Somuyie Group of Farmers expressed gratitude to Skyfox for honouring their promise and assured them of the farmers’ readiness to buy more shares in the second phase to improve their livlihood.

Mr Awudu Yakubu Omoro Modoc, the Chief Executive Officer of APDO, on behalf of Skyfox handed over the cheques to the farmers group.
