13,000 farmers and vulnerable women bag Katsina Cares largesse

 About 13,000 farmers and vulnerable women in Katsina, yesterday, benefited from the COVID-19 Action Recovery Economic Stimulus Programme otherwise known ”Katsina Cares.”

The beneficiaries, who were drawn from several communities, were provided with cash grants and agricultural inputs as well as several other livelihood support and resources.

The third cycle of the programme was recently held at Kangiwa Square in Daura Metropolis.

The Nation recalls that the Katsina State governor, Dikko Umaru Radda, had inaugurated Katsina 

Cares on December 14, 2023, where 19,543 farmers, households, and communities benefited from the initiative.

In the current cycle, Katsina Cares is expected to distribute livelihood support to 2,700 beneficiaries, operational cash assistance to 2,718 beneficiaries, agricultural inputs to 7,370 selected farmers across the 34 local governments and support grants to 74 CSDAs across the state.

At the Daura event, Governor Radda emphasised that the cycle of the programme involved the distribution of grinding machines to women, farm implements to farmers, and cash transfers to identified small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) operators across the state.

He urged programme managers to ensure effective monitoring and supervision to guarantee its success.
