Remaining Abraham Budale of Greenfold Farms and Farmbuddy. A criminal and a fraudster. He also operates a fraudulent Real Estate company called Mcbuddy Properties Limited. The sick thing is that he moved his lekki branch to somewhere in Abijo GRA and no one knows where he is located. He also has an estate called Hampton Park Estate in Abijo where he has been working on which I am sure he used investor funds. ABRAHAM BUDALE THE THIEF!!!!
Do business with him at your own risk. He is a fraudster!!!

Thanks for your feedback. It would be unfair to do such now as some persons have testified to recieving payments, also most techfarm on the MMM list have either defaulted for a longer period of time (12 months) without payment or have absconded with investors money.

These were/are the criterias needed.

From requid.

We have spent the last few months working on debt recovery for delayed payments. As we have shared with you earlier, we engaged the services of a law firm and fund recovery partner with the sole objective of helping us drive our fund recovery efforts.

Here are the development between our last discussion and now with respect to fund recovery:
Greenfold: We have received commitment from Greenfold through our fund recovery team. They provided us with a postdated cheque and a written undertaking to pay a considerable sum of the debt by December 31st this year. The recovered value should cover about 25% of payments. In addition, they have provided a written undertaking to have completed payments by 30th of June 2022.
​​​Abadini: As previously communicated, we received post-dated cheques from Abadini due at the end of January and March 2022 respectively.
Novus: Due to ongoing court proceedings, farmers are being mandated to remit funds intermittently. Our efforts to seek compensation are also in progress, while our fundraising efforts are still underway. Recovery is coming in slowly, thus the stated date of 31st December, 2021 may not be realistic. We will provide further additional details shortly.
Farmsponsor: Despite previous commitments from Farmsponsor, we are yet to receive any payments. However, over a month ago, having not received any adequate confirmation from Farmsponsor on their readiness to meet with the adjusted payment timelines, we initiated a process as we did with Greenfold to enforce recovery. We are hopeful that we will get tangible results soon.
Groupfarma: Payment settlement arrangements are in progress with the help of our fund recovery partner. We are hopeful that we would have a more concrete commitment shortly.
We will share further progress with you soon.

Thank you for your continued patience.

Kind Regards,

Juddy

Seeking Poultry Farm Business Partnership

Dear All,

Good morning. I am the founder of Nutridel Farms and also an investor. I stumbled on this platform early last year in the middle of Covid-19 when I started researching alternative ways to invest as a result of loss of attractiveness of Treasury Bills and Money Market. I invested massively into the agritech crowdfunding space and I have had my fair share of losses here and there.

I knew investing into crowdfunding wasn't something I wanted to do for long due to the huge risks and uncertainties, hence, I conceived an idea to venture into farming myself. I successfully set up a poultry farm which started operation early this year. However, I was unlucky as I couldn't get my funds out from these ponzi schemes operators masquerading as agritech crowdfunding companies before they things started falling apart. Still, I am eager to recover my funds from these folks.

Now, to the crux of the matter I want to discuss. My losses in crowdfunding have taken a huge tolls on my business expansion plans. Hence, I have decided to seek partnership with interested parties. Please note that this is not a crowdfunding opportunity but an invitation to become part of the business (collective ownership and sense of responsibility) and contribute to the progress of the business. I am willing to give up 10% - 20% stake.

Interested persons should send me an email to Nutridelfarm@yahoo.com. I will be setting up a video zoom meeting with interested persons where everyone would have the opportunity to ask questions, know more about me and the business. Also, I will be presenting an investment pitch.

Peradventure, you have doubts or see this as another packaged scam or will react negatively to this post, I take no offense and I totally understand as someone who has been had his fingers severely burnt in the course of investing into agritech. I understand! I will simply move on and continue to deplete my savings and earning to fund the expansion plans as I am currently doing.

Attached to this post are:
1. Process Flow Diagram
2. Picture of our ongoing mini poultry processing plant which commenced last week Monday. As you'd see, significant progress has been made within just a week.

Thank you for your consideration. I welcome doubts, criticism, negative and positive remarks. I am available to answer any questions as well.

What is the current value of the business?

What is the monetary cost of 10% to 20% equity in the business?

What is the expected income projection from the business?

Don't you think debt financing will be a better and cheaper options?

What is debt equity ratio of this business?

What are the structures and systems put in place to ensure fairness, integrity, transparency and good corporate governance in this business?

What is the name of the business?

I guess the property and other assets are in the name of the business?

After a successful equity fund raising exercise by the business, I hope the shareholding structure will show the current owners of the business at Corporate Affairs Commission?

These are very good questions. I'd take a stab at answering them.

What is the current value of the business?

The value of the business is being worked as we speak. To provide some hints, the value of the current assets on ground is in the neighborhood of 25M - 30M (preliminary). An in depth detail of the current value of the business will be provided ahead of the zoom meeting. it's a 5000 capacity poultry farm with enough space for expansion.

What is the monetary cost of 10% to 20% equity in the business?

This will be included in the pitch presentation pack. Once the valuation exercise is completed, it'd be easy to estimate what 10% equity would translate into. But based on the figure I provided above, you should have some idea

What is the expected income projection from the business?

Going by the last cycle (six weeks) which ended in September, profit was 7.8%. This could have been as high as 10 -12% if we had a processing plant in place. A thorough profit projection based on present realities will be worked and provided to interested equity partners.

Don't you think debt financing will be a better and cheaper options?
Yes you are right. However, the risk is much higher. There is that obligation to pay back. In my view, the debt financing option is quite similar to the crowdfunding that these agritech firms do and have spoilt. The debt must be paid regardless of the performance of the business which puts a lot of pressure on me to deliver. I don't think I want to deal with a barrage of aggrieved investors just like the agritech firms are having to deal with now. Yes, I don't do shady deals but It's not an attractive option for me.

What is debt equity ratio of this business?
zero. Operations are financed with my savings and earnings.

What are the structures and systems put in place to ensure fairness, integrity, transparency and good corporate governance in this business?

No structure and systems in place for now as the farm is still relatively new but I am a proponent of strong systems and institutions to ensure fairness, transparency in our business dealings. I keep a record of business transactions. I am open to considering any other options and ideas from partners to help ensure fair business dealings. This is one of my the reasons for my preference for equity partnership. The equity partner owns a part of the business and is privy to everything going on. I need people to work with me to put this together.

What is the name of the business?

Nutridel Farms (proposed) - not registered yet.

I guess the property and other assets are in the name of the business?

No, current properties are in my name but future acquisitions will be in the company's or partners' name. I didn't envisage a situation like this. But I am sure there'd be some legal ways to ensure assets in my name can be co-owned.

After a successful equity fund raising exercise by the business, I hope the shareholding structure will show the current owners of the business at Corporate Affairs Commission?

Yes. The good thing is that the business is still in its formative years and equity partners will have ample opportunity to shape and influence things.

I hope this helps some. Please feel free to seek more clarifications or send me an email. I am also open to a phone conversation.

These are very good questions. I'd take a stab at answering them.

What is the current value of the business?

The value of the business is being worked as we speak. To provide some hints, the value of the current assets on ground is in the neighborhood of 25M - 30M (preliminary). An in depth detail of the current value of the business will be provided ahead of the zoom meeting. it's a 5000 capacity poultry farm with enough space for expansion.

That property shared can't be more than N4 million.

How old is the business?

What is your average monthly cash flow in the last 3 years.


Current properties are in your name and you want to raise money for a business that doesn't have assets in its name.

Doubt if any informed investor will be interested in this type of deal


First of all get an accountant that will help you tidy up your assets, liabilities, accounts, corporate structure.

What property? Did you mean that the property can't be more than N4 million. If yes, then you are wrong sir. You can't even construct a 5000 capacity poultry pen with 10M. I can share the list of assets with you if you want.

How old is the business?

Less than a year. Operation started Feb this year.

What is your average monthly cash flow in the last 3 years.
Business is less than 1 year. Do you mean net cash flow? We've only completed 3 cycles.

You are right no doubt but properties have been bought already. As I said, there are ways to work around this. One way I can think of is to sign a MOU that is legally binding. I am open to other ways. However, I must state that I am not desperate for this equity partnership thing. I am fine with anyone not interested. I will continue to fund the business myself regardless. I am considering this to reduce the strain on my savings. The construction of the processing plant will be completed in two weeks time. By God's grace, we will start a new cycle next year.

Thanks for your suggestion. This will be considered within the context of what is realistically possible given the scale of our operation.

Thanks once again for your consideration.

The value of what you shared here is not more than N4 million


If you think the business is worth N25 Million to N30 million, keep on doing what produced the fund, give yourself a 5 year target, you will be okay.

Better still, talk to your family, friends, community members, neighbours, old school mates etc, you will get the fund
