Kabiru's story

Kabiru is a hardworking Babban Gona maize farmer from Sabon Gida village. Kabiru lives in a modest mud house with his family. Thanks to his hard work, he feeds his family with three well-balanced meals a day.

With a Babban Gona membership, Kabiru will have access to better-yielding seed, fertilizer, herbicide, and other more efficient inputs that will help him optimize his farm and attain yields of up to 3.5 metric tonnes per hectare. Not only is this yield 2.3 times higher than the national average in Nigeria, it also results in an increase in income earnings, 3.5 times higher than the national average for him.

This season, Kabiru will use the income generated from his maize sales to open an Agro dealer shop. Kabiru’s greatest memory as a Babban Gona farmer is when he bought additional farmland. He is confident that with Babban Gona, his future is secure and he will have many more great memories and amazing accomplishments together with his family.
