Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel is married and lives with his family in a humble mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In his community, farming is the primary occupation. Like many driven smallholders, he dreams of expanding his farm business.

Emmanuel 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 Emmanuel’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 2015, his happiest memory was sending his children to school.

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