Idris's story

Idris is a Babban Gona maize farmer from Damari village. He is married with three children and lives in a mud house with his family. He is a meticulous farmer who has invested time and resources in his farm. He hopes his children work twice as hard as he has and become doctors.

Thanks to his drive, Idris is able to ensure that his family eats three square meals a day. In order for Idris to keep improving his yield and, as a result, feed his family, he needs access to high-quality inputs such as fertilizers, herbicides and improved seeds. As a Babban Gona member, Idris will be provided with a full suite of the best inputs to optimize his farm and increase his yields up to 3.5 metric tons per hectare; 2.3 times the national average.

With increased yields and income of up to 3.5 times the national average, Idris looks forward to using his additional income to pay his children's school fees. Idris is a happy Babban Gona farmer and holds having a good harvest as his best memory as a Babban Gona member. He looks forward to a brighter future with Babban Gona as his partner in fighting poverty.
