Daniel's story

Daniel, who is 38 years of age, married, and has four children, lives in a rural town in Kaduna, Nigeria. He lives in a small community where maize farming is the major occupation and means of livelihood.

Due to the very low income realized from his farming business, it has become difficult for farmers like Daniel to support their family's needs. This situation is a major challenge common to smallholders, regardless of the yield they achieve during harvest.

By working with Babban Gona and this loan, Daniel will get access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs to boost his yield. The loan will also help him earn up to 2.8 times in net income, compared to the average Nigerian farmer, as he will be selling his maize to premium buyers, ensuring that Daniel can continue to provide for his family.

At the end of the season, Daniel plans to use the profits he earns from his harvest to purchase additional farmland to expand his maize farming operations.
