Hussaini's story

Hussaini, a Babban Gona maize farmer, is married and lives in a modest mud house with his family in Makama village. Hussaini is a meticulous farmer who has invested time and resources on his farm and like every parent, hopes to see his 5 children work twice as hard and become successful in the future.

Owing to his inner zeal and enthusiasm, Hussaini is able to ensure that his family eats 2 square meals a day. In order for Hussaini to keep improving his yield and as a result feed his family, he needs access to high quality inputs, such as fertilizers, herbicides and better yielding seeds.

Luckily, as a Babban Gona member, Hussaini 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 - 2 times the national average.

With increased yield and income of up to 2.8 times the average, Hussaini looks forward to using his additional income to pay his children's school fees. Hussaini is a happy Babban Gona farmer and holds when he had a good yield as his best memory as a Babban Gona member. Hussaini looks forward to a brighter future with Babban Gona as he too has joined the fight against poverty.
