Murtala's story

Murtala lives in a simple mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. Murtala is married with one child and grows maize to support his family. Since joining Babban Gona in 2017, his happiest memory was feeding his family all the time.

With this loan, he will be able to purchase improved inputs to get a good yield and use the profits to secure his family's future. Murtala believes that by continuing to work with Babban Gona, he will achieve his goal this season which is to learn new agronomic practices. Apart from increasing Murtala's yield to ensure that his family never goes hungry, this loan will also help his 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, Murtala plans to use the profits he earns from his harvest purchase additional farmland and enhance their standard of living. Murtala looks forward to living in an improved house and to many more abundant harvests.
