The Federal Government through the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has launched the Federal Government Special Cash Grant for Rural Women at the Fulani settlement of Hutawa near Birnin Kebbi.
About 247 Fulani women under the umbrella of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria MACBAN will receive N20,000 each to improve their economic wellbeing.

The Minister who visited the Fulani settlement located on the outskirts of Birnin Kebbi at the weekend expressed happiness at the economic empowerment training being given to the Fulani women by the Kebbi state government.

“I am delighted to see that these Fulani women are being taught the modern methods of yoghurt production using cow milk. This will go a long way in empowering them to be self reliant and able to provide for their families.
“I enjoin all the Fulani women who have received this training by the Kebbi state government to put it to practice as this will also improve the economic status of not just the women but the state and country at large”.
