Safiya's story

Safiya is a 42-year-old mother of six residing in Pampaida-Makaranta. Not only is she a Babban Gona farmer, she is also a Babban Gona Trust Group Leader. Safiya leads a group of Babban Gona female farmers and as a leader, she provides her group with the necessary guidance and leadership to increase their productivity and profitability. For Safiya, Babban Gona is an integral component of her family’s livelihood; even her husband, Haruna, is a Babban Gona Member. Safiya is thrilled with how her family has benefited from Babban Gona; she says “Babban Gona is a good business and it has made my life better.” Safiya is most excited about the fact that through Babban Gona she receives multiple profit payments as opposed to making only a meager profit at harvest under a traditional system. She now has high hopes and aspirations for her six children; her desire is that they attain a university education and go on to lead successful lives. With the improved seeds, high quality fertilizer, and other inputs that Safiya will receive this year on credit, she will stand the chance to triple her yield and income, bringing her closer to achieving her goals.
