A loan helped to purchase improved farm inputs that will increase his farm's yield.


Ibrahim's story

Ibrahim is a hardworking maize farmer who lives in a modest mud house with his wife and four children in a small village in Kaduna state. Previously, despite toiling for long hours on his farm, Ibrahim was only able to feed his family two meals a day.

Now that he is a Babban Gona member, Ibrahim will, because of this loan, be provided with higher-yielding seeds that are locally adapted and are widely accepted in his local community. He will also have the recommended pesticides and fertilizers based on the results of his field assessment.

This will enable Ibrahim to optimize his yield; he can attain yields of up to 3.8 metric tonnes per hectare, two times the national average in Nigeria. This will not only increase his income earnings 2.8 times the national average, but also ensure that Ibrahim can continue to provide for his family.

Ibrahim will use the income generated from his maize sales this season to purchase additional farmland so as to expand his maize farming operations. Ibrahim is confident that, with Babban Gona, he will overcome poverty, securing a strong future for generations to come.
