|Investment / Re: Is Farmcrowdy Truly Legitimate? by MathsChic(f): 10:40am On Oct 12, 2017|
I disagree with you completely. Farmcrowdy owes every single potential investor details of the insurance on the farm they sponsor. It's called customer service. You don't go about sourcing this information yourself, as you'll never get the complete picture from outside of the deal. What's to say what you got from Leadway is what the insurance is about?
Anyways, I sent mails to their managers already and got all the details on the insurance I need to make a decision on my investments with farmcrowdy.
|Investment / Is Farmcrowdy Truly Legitimate? by MathsChic(f): 11:42am On Aug 13, 2017|
I'm sure some of you know about Farmcrowdy already. It's a digital agricultural platform where farm sponsors are able to purchase farms and reap rewards of up to 15% in 5-6months after gestation. Their website is www.farmcrowdy.com. I wrote about them sometime ago.
Now, I have come questions or concerns I'd just like to raise.
I had a chat with their representative online regarding the nature of insurance they provide for invested money. According to them, all monies invested are insured by Leadway Insurance, so investors don't lose money. However, the nature of this insurance is not disclosed. I pressed the representative further and all I got in return was that "this has not happened before". On asking how they intend to cover the loss they'll incur if it does happen, I got no response. I couldn't even elicit a response how this insurance mechanism is structured and how they interpret losses, if they do incur one. Is a loss when they fail to make their desired, expected revenue, or when they make only an insufficient percentage?
Responses from the representative were standard copy-paste responses, with some even repeated for the same questions. I find this a great concern.
I don't know if anyone has heard of Theranos (an american bio-tech coy). They came onto the scene making promises which turned out false. But it took the investigative power of a diligent WSJ journalist to out them. Unfortunately, Nigeria is not such a country gifted with tech journalists who go the distance in their investigations, else wouldn't it be nice to have someone on their case?
I'd love to know what you think of this. We need to get the detail of that insurance with Leadway.

These guys don't understand economics one bit. There's no reason they should be making monetary policy decisions for the CBN. Unfortunately, the CBN itself is guilty of participating in this reckless exercise of dollar subsidy. As experienced as most of the directors are, they aren't seeing farther than their noses.

Lubyna:Thumbs up! 10000+ likes
However, it's almost a futile exercise explaining this to Nigerian men. Most don't even recognize that humans, right from ancient times, have always been driven to seek out mates who would provide the best for them in terms of quality of life. That gibberish about blindly loving, is just gibberish. Natural selection ensures that even successful humans are driven to better partners who are not only compatible with them, but can also cater for them. Like attracts like.

|Investment / Legitimate Investments You Can Make In Nigeria by MathsChic(f): 5:36pm On Jun 30, 2017|
We have seen the rise (and of course fall) of sundry get-rich-quick investment schemes which all have the tinge of MMM to it. Though many have not learnt and continue to invest their hard-earned (perhaps not!) cash in these schemes, most who have been burnt and burnt hard have practically desisted from maintaining accounts with these Ponzi and pseudo-Ponzi investments. For those who have been burnt but who still seek to invest in legitimate concerns, please read on...
Today, I'll share with you a few verified means of actually making real money in Nigeria. These are not schemes with interest rates of 50 or 100%; not the types where you lose your money. Instead, they preserve your principal and actually help you rake a decent interest over your savings.
1. Fixed Deposit (6-10% annually)
You make fixed deposit investments with virtually all banks in Nigeria. Depending on such bank, you can reap interests of between 6-10%. Your negotiating power also comes into play. And should you boast sizeable savings in the million range, you could make something really worthwhile over several months. Fixed deposit investments are typically long term investments, are compounded and your bank can provide you with a monthly report on how your investment is growing.
2. Treasury Bills (~18% for 365 days)
You can make up to 18% in a year with treasury bills. For the long term investor, clearly this seems a better bargain than fixed deposits. Enquire from your local bank how you can invest in treasury bills. Though they may hesitate a bit in providing directions, continual persistence always makes them yield.
3. Mutual Funds (varying rates, ~15% on the average)
There are a host of investment firms offering the opportunity to invest in mutual or guaranteed funds. These investment firms basically help coordinate your funds by strategically placing it in treasury bills, bonds or fixed deposits, while taking their cut off the profits it yields. You should certainly consider putting your millions in these investments if you are the typical long term investor. Some of these firms are ARM, First Bank Capital, Stanbic IBTC investment arm, etc. Google them
4. Farmcrowdy (sundry offers such as 15% in 5 months)
Farmcrowdy helps connect sponsors with farmers. As a sponsor you put some money into Farmcrowdy which they in turn provide to farmers who farm with the money and generate profit. Farmcrowdy then refunds you your principal with interest. Quite a beautiful idea.
Watch on www.farmcrowdy.com when they make new farms available. Apparently, the farms are selling real fast, with the farms often selling out in less than a day on their sites. The good thing: your money is insured, i.e. should the farm or farmcrowdy fail, you are certain to get your money back, but without interest. However, that has not happened so far since the firm started operations.
If only because it's a reliable store of value.
I hope these help

Utter nonsense. In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is the king. It doesn't matter if he sees no further than his nose. In a country where a significant subset cannot reason for themselves, the man who reasons only as far as his pocket commands attention.

|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: How I Held Pastors Spellbound During A Pastoral Job Interview by MathsChic(f): 8:52am On Mar 29, 2017|
Like our proverbial Akpos, I walked out of the crowd with that gait suggestive of a clown's shameful confidence, and consequently threw my classmates into uncontrollable laughter. Their action was understandable, because I had hitherto paraded myself as a newscaster, who, during one of my comic sessions, had aired the news in which a commercial airplane caught fire in space, and no one was injured in the slightest.-repeated "had"
They couldn't think of it that I had taken the debate topic to my uncle, who was a teacher. He wrote a nice argument for me, and I rehearsed it with fervour. I unleashed such a mastery that dazed everyone present.
Having tasted the thrill of the achievement, I started gathering resources on public speaking, and Mark Twain, Napoleon Hill later became my heroes. I trained myself more on the speech strategies that give pastors the hedge over their contemporaries. At 20, having led prayer sessions on many occasions in my local church, our pastor informed me that God has called me into the five-fold ministry with pastoral calling.
While in the university, I read works from great people like Plato and Socrates, and consequently discarded my Christian ideals entirely. It was then I explored Satanism and other faiths until I concluded that I'm the god I've been looking for all these while.-works of
-all this while/all the while
As an animal scientist, I lost interest in that field, and was looking for a job that has to do with public speaking until an advertisement was made for the post of a chaplain in a psychiatric hospital. Certification was required, diploma in theology would suffice. I have nothing of that nature, but flaunted my two-time pastoral experience in two of the largest churches in Nigeria.
"I have worked before in a farm where we had a cow suffering from madcow disease. You would not need to be told that the flaccid disposition the horned herbivore was known for had deserted it. I wouldn't see the attacking cow as a traducer. I only have to be wary of the zoonotic form of madcow disease, which we in animal science call variant Creutzfeldt Jacob Disease(vCJD). In our case here, not all clinical cases are natural, and with my authority as a believer, I will put to flight the armies of the aliens. This will be done by faith, because 'By faith, the elders obtained good reports'", I answered.-traducer? seriously!?
With split-second precision, I quoted ICorinthians 9:13 and said, "'Do you not know that those who labor in the Temple are provided for from the Temple, and those who serve the altar share in the altar?' Having reeled out this Scripture, I don't have to explain it for my betters in faith."-I did not have to explain...
I will be showing you hidden public speaking rules personalized to suit various individuals and my personal experience in my next write-ups. To succeed in public speaking, you need to believe you are the only living thing on earth, while all other things are robots. That means you take responsibility for your failure to thrill the crowd of accolades and hangers-on.--accolades?
Where in the world are you from!? So many errors of syntax; even more errors of semantics. And you want to teach people to speak? Evidently, your delusion is taking greater proportions. It was still cloaked to some degree in your previous posts. Now, it has lost its garb and is loose. I'd advise you seek help.
