The unavailability of jobs have compelled individuals to seek for alternative jobs. People now think of what they can do on their own to earn a living. Since Nigeria is characterized by agribusiness, most people are in the area of agribusinesses. They are involved in the production of inputs, farm production and distribution and marketing of what has been produced. Though cooperative form part of the business, education is required for them to progress along that line. Finance and good management are also required if profit is to be maximized.
