Bank of Industry Cassava Bread Fund

The Nigerian government is spending 4.3 billion Naira (about 27.6 million dollars) on the upgrading of small Cassava flourmills and processors. The fund is to be managed by the Bank of Industry (BOI). The Minister of Agriculture, Akinwumi Adesina and the Managing Director of the BOI, Evelyn Oputu, signed the Cassava Bread Fund agreement. It is also aimed at providing ready market for Cassava farmers.

The Cassava Bread Fund is expected to produce 5,000 bakers and many more SMEs producing Cassava flour. The provision of the fund is part of the Nigerian government’s plan to diversify the economy which is hugely dependent on Crude oil revenue.
