Lukman's story

Lukman lives in a simple mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. Lukman is married with one child and grows maize to support his family. Since joining Babban Gona in 2016, his happiest memory was buying a car. With this loan, he will be able to buy fertilizers and seed in order to get a good harvest and grow his business. Lukman believes that by continuing to work with Babban Gona, he will achieve his goal this season to be the best performing farmer in his community. Apart from increasing Lukman'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 national average, from selling his maize to premium buyers. At the end of the season, Lukman plans to use the profits he earns from his harvest to purchase additional farmland and improve their living conditions. Lukman looks forward to living in the improved house and to many more bountiful harvests.
