Babban Gona smallholder farmers

MARKAFI, NIGERIA - FEBRUARY 7: Nigerian farmers harvest tomatoes into baskets during the dry season on a smallholder farm on February 7, 2014 in Makarfi, Kaduna State, Nigeria. The farmers are all part of Babban Gona, which means "Great Farm" in Hausa, a program started by Kola Masha in 2010 to harness the untapped power of smallholders by increasing their yields, rebuilding the supply chain and opening access to economies of scale. Kola Masha believes that these farmers can be West Africa's answer to their economic and agricultural problems if he can make it profitable. Babban Gona has successfully helped 13,500 farmers double their yield and expects the number of smallholder farmers they serve to be near 100,000 by the year 2020. (Photo by Jason Andrew)
