Musa's story

Musa is a Babban Gona maize farmer from Makera village. He is married with 3 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 business persons.

Thanks to his drive, Musa was able to ensure that his family ate 3 square meals a day during the hunger season. In order for Musa 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, Musa will be provided with a full suite of the best inputs to optimize his farm and increase his yields up to 3.5 metric tones per hectare, 2.3 times the national average.

With increased yields and income of up to 3.5 times the national average, Musa looks forward to using his additional income to go on Pilgrimage. Musa is a happy Babban Gona farmer and holds when he got great 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.
