Rayyanu's story

Rayyanu is a 40-year-old hardworking maize farmer who lives in a modest mud house with his wife and 4 children in a small village in Kaduna state.

Rayyanu is returning to work with Babban Gona as he 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 Rayyanu to optimize his yield, where he can attain yields of up to 3.8 metric tonnes per hectare, 2 times the national average in Nigeria. This will not only increase his income earnings to 2.8 times the national average but also will ensure that Rayyanu can continue to provide for his family.

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