Assurance of returns from Micro Investment?


The biggest issue with micro investment is that with high returns, comes high risk.  Yes it is possible to make a 25-30% p.a. return on cassava, but not the year a pest destroys the crop or bad weather reduces the yield.
In the more developed countries most farmers use crop insurance, futures contracts and hedging to assure their business and reduce the risk of the business losing money.

 Likewise other business frequently hedge against a currency or an input commodity (e.g. oil) .  These financial mechanisms are not widely available to Nigerian businesses.

We want to change this and ultimately we want to be able to offer a secure, high return, low risk investment that international investors would want to invest in.

We are currently working to develop an Augur blockchain based system to assure micro investment projects and remove the key risks.
