Dalami's story

Dalami is a Babban Gona maize farmer from Karauka Matari village. He is married with 5 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 successful farmers.

Thanks to his drive, Dalami is able to ensure that his family eats 3 square meals a day. In order for Dalami 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, Dalami will be provided with a full suite of the best inputs to optimize his farm and increase his yields up to 3.5 metric tonnes per hectare; 2.3 times the national average.

With increased yields and income of up to 3.5 times the national average, Dalami looks forward to using his additional income to pay his children's school fees. Dalami is a happy Babban Gona farmer and holds his good yield 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.
