Mamuda's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy fertilizers and seeds to get a good yield and earn more money.

Mamuda's story

Mamuda is from a small community in Kaduna state, where he grows maize to support his family. Mamuda has been a Babban Gona member for one season.

Mamuda's goal for this farming season is to learn new agronomic practices. With this loan, he will get access to improved seeds, fertilizers, herbicides and other inputs, which are critical to increasing his yield to up to 4.2 metric tonnes per hectare, which is more than double the national average in Nigeria. This will enable him to generate earnings of up to three times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income.

Mamuda hopes to buy a threshing machine with the profit from this season. He recalls opening an agro dealer shop as his happiest memory as a Babban Gona member. Mamuda looks forward to a brighter future with Babban Gona and to making many more great memories with his family.
