Kamilu's story

Kamilu, a Babban Gona maize farmer, is married and lives in a modest mud house with his family in the village of Unguwan Dinya. Kamilu is a meticulous farmer who has invested time and resources in his farm and, like every parent, hopes to see his four children work twice as hard as him and become successful in the future.

Owing to his inner zeal and enthusiasm, Kamilu is able to ensure that his family eats three square meals a day. In order for Kamilu to keep improving his yield and, as a result, be able to feed his family, he needs access to high quality inputs, such as fertilizer, herbicides and better yielding seeds. Luckily, as a Babban Gona member, Kamilu will be provided with a full suite of the best inputs to optimize his farm and increase his yield up to 3.8 metric tonnes per hectare, which is two times the national average.

With increased yield and an income of up to 2.8 times the national average, Kamilu looks forward to using his additional income to build a better house for his family. Kamilu is a happy Babban Gona farmer and holds when he gained good yield as his best memory as a Babban Gona member.

Kamilu looks forward to a brighter future with Babban Gona as he, too, has joined the fight against poverty.
