Commodity Aggregation businesses serve as middlemen in the grains value chain in Nigeria. They are known to rely on steady cash flow to run their businesses.
Unfortunately, many of their buyers are unable to pay on time.
What this leads to is a disastrous cycle where commodity aggregators are unable to buy grains from smallholder farmers due to the lack of prompt payments.
This is why we pay all our commodity aggregation partners within 24 hours.
