Yunusa's story

Yunusa is a 38-year-old, hardworking maize farmer who lives in a modest mud house with his wife and four children in a small village in Kaduna state.

Yunusa is returning to work with Babban Gona because he will gain access to higher yielding seeds that are locally adapted and are widely accepted in his local community. He will also obtain the recommended pesticides and fertilizers based on the results of his field assessment.

This will enable Yunusa to optimize his yield, where he can attain yields of up to 3.8 metric tons per hectare, or two times the national average in Nigeria. This will not only increase his income earnings 2.8 times the national average but it will also ensure that Yunusa can continue to provide for his family.

Yunusa will use the income generated from his maize sales this season to build a better house for his family. Yunusa is confident that with Babban Gona he will overcome poverty, securing a strong future for generations to come.
