Smallholder farmers are indeed major contributors to the agricultural sector but they still cannot boast of a secure livelihood.

Our smallholder farmers comprise women who produce about 60-80% of the food we consume but are still struggling with a secure livelihood.

Our podcast host Sharon Idahosa had a seat with Hadiza Yaro, the country manager of East-West Seed Nigeria.

She is a phenomenal woman with hands-on experience in agriculture and dealing with women in rural communities.

We wanted someone who will do justice to this topic and she’s one person we know can handle this topic.

She addressed this topic by shedding light on the questions below which we believe should interest you as a farmer.

✅ Can you say that giving a grant is a great way of helping farmers increase their income?

✅ How can we drive & support the livelihood of our farmers?

✅ What can you highlight as the major constraints smallholder farmers face when it comes to earning?
