Investment opportunity in Agricultural Land

Capital alternatives provide investment opportunities in agricultural land in Africa at a low investment of $9,000 (for 3 acres). The scheme expects to provide an income of 15% from rice harvests (at least 2 harvests per annum). Offered at a low investment entry level, returns are generated from constant rises in the price of land and income generated from the sale of rice, which is the staple food of the local population. The project is backed by a money-back-guarantee, in case; there is no harvest in the first 2 years. Investors receive the title deed of the land, which is allocated on a 48-year lease. The capital returns are expected to be 50% as soon as the land is prepared for harvest and a conservative 7% per annum.
