Bulus's story

Bulus is a Babban Gona maize farmer from Auduga Village. He is a hardworking married man with 7 children and lives in a mud house with his family. His youngest children are Elisha and Ibrahim who he hopes grow up to be doctors. During the hunger season, his family was only able to eat 2 meals a day despite working several hours on the farm.

As a Babban Gona member, Bulus will have access to good seeds, fertilizers, herbicides and other quality inputs that will help him optimize his farm and attain yields up to 3.5 metric tones per hectare; 2.3 times the national average in Nigeria and increase his income earnings up to 3.5 times the national average. With this increase in yield, he can now ensure that his family never goes hungry again.

This season, Bulus will use the income he makes from his maize sales to pay his children's school fees. Bulus’s greatest memory as a Babban Gona farmer is when he bought a motorcycle. He is confident that with Babban Gona his future is secure and that he will have many more great memories and amazing accomplishments.
