  1. I’m a farmer in the northern part of Nigeria whose farm products is the source of relief for some nearby communities and I also hire hundred number of people whose lives rely on wages from me. I’m seriously interested and in need of the grant. I will use the grant if given, to boost and widen the level of productivity. Therefore, address the problem of abject poverty, provision of enough food and reducing the mortality rate especially women and girl children. Etc.
