Aliyu's story

Aliyu is married and lives with his family in an ordinary mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In his community, farming is the primary occupation and, like many diligent smallholders, he dreams of expanding his farm business.

Aliyu is returning to work with Babban Gona this season as he will get access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs that will boost his yield. Apart from increasing Aliyu’s yield to ensure that his family never goes hungry, this loan will also help him earn up to 3 times in net income, compared to the average Nigerian farmer, from selling his maize. Since he joined Babban Gona in 2017, his happiest memory was sending his children to school.

With lenders’ support to grow his farming business, Aliyu is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. Aliyu plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to pay his children's school fees.
