Increasing incomes for small farmers

    Newer Older

    Cowpea farmer Balarabe Kausani started using the PICS bags two years ago. Since then, he has seen his income jump by about 20 percent. He is earning enough to make improvements to his home, install an irrigation system on his farm, and pay school fees for his four children. (Kano, Nigeria, 2010)
