Wear a Smile with … Isaac Banda


Isaac Banda is a very experienced cotton farmer. On his small farm in the Lundazi subregion of Zambia, he has been growing cotton since 1998. Through Cotton made in Africa, Issaac has received trainings in Good Agricultural Practices – and now also has access to affordable inputs on loan. “As a result, I have increased my cotton yields and incomes“, he reports. “I have built a two bedroom house, bought a cow and diversified into two other crops.” As the father of two daughters and three sons, Isaac provides for his family. “The cotton income has helped me to attain household food security and provide other household needs.”
