Personal Story of Musa Employee of LI created Irrigation Farm
Musa worked hard doing any odd job he could to support his wife and five children. Three years ago when Shehu created his irrigation farm with Leadership Initaitives, Musa was one of his first hires.
Over the years of working on the irrigation farm with Shehu, Musa’s salary has grown and he can now take care of his entire family.
Musa has grown not only as an employee but a leader among his peers, training new workers and working to create better harvesting techniques for the farm.
Two of his children have graduated from secondary school while the other 3 are in primary school. All of his children plan to attend school and even University thanks to their father’s support.
Musa has also become a shoulder to lean on to his family, offering his new home for friends and family and offering to assist with their doctor bills when they fall ill. He is able to do this because of the income he earns on the farm.
Musa plans to continue working on the farm with Shehu and has been inspired to use the expertise he has learned working on the farm to create a small business of his own to help him earn extra income to send his children to University.
