Bello's story

Bello is a Babban Gona maize farmer from Sakin Noma village. He is married with 8 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 him and become doctors.

Thanks to his drive, Bello is able to ensure that his family eats 3 square meals a day. For Bello to keep improving his yield and feed his family, he needs access to high quality inputs, such as fertilizers, herbicides, and improved seeds. As a Babban Gona member, Bello 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 which is 2.3 times the national average.

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