Adama Dan Maiya, a 20 years old mother of one from Unguwar Narba in (Kardi community) of Birnin-Kebbi, Kebbi State; benefitted from the Income generation aspect of Feed the Future Nigeria Livelihood Project and was issued a grant of N30,000 out of which she used N11,000 in purchasing some chemicals for pomade production.
Adama has been able to successfully manage her pomade business.
During the course of the project intervention, we had earlier helped her to set up a sewing business for quite some time; N15, 000 of the grant received was used to purchase another sewing machine to boost her business. Being a member of the Savings and Internal Lending Community she has saved the sum of N16,000.
Through our multi-facet livelihood interventions, Adama’s life has been greatly affected positively, as she and her child can now feed properly as well as provide for her parents.
