Madam Helen Kelo, 47, maize, pepper, guinea corn and accha or white phonio farmer in Billiri, said women and children mostly go to farms, adding: “It is very difficult to see men going to farm in this area except the women and children.“That is why you discover that our women are very hard working because they take care of the house. After producing what we eat in the year, I will also make sure I produce enough to sell, pay school fess and buy other things. I always go to farm with my children if they are on holidays.”
